An individual with a sound mind and sound health ensures safety and avoids road rages. Remember that it is not only about getting your commercial vehicle driver's license.

Medical History Checkup

We have the best primary care physicians at our clinic. We look for any past and current medical history that might impact your ability to drive a commercial vehicle on the road. Our doctors check for any chronic medical conditions, previous surgeries, current medication, and nerve disorders.

Blood pressure and Pulse Checkup

It is a very common screening of every commercial vehicle driver to check for high blood pressure and heart rate. Our primary care doctors look into the cardiovascular health of the applicant to ensure that he is fit for the job. We usually look if the blood pressure and pulse fall under specific guidelines for acceptable set by the FMCSA.

Vision and Hearing Test 

Our doctors check the vision and hearing conditions of the commercial drivers. We check according to the FMCSA requirements are-

  • Visual and binocular acuity of at least 20/40 (Snellen) in each eye
  • At least 70 degrees of vision in the horizontal meridian in each eye
  • Perception of a forced whisper at not less than 5 feet
  • No average hearing loss should happen at 40 decibels (at 500 Hz, 1,000 Hz, and 2,000 Hz)

Sleep Apnea Test

Sleep disorder is an important aspect to consider during DOT/CDL examination. Our best primary care physicians study the quality of your sleep to determine the condition. We offer treatment and instructions for any sleep complexities after the sleep apnea test. We can also help you with sleep management by providing a schedule.

Drug and Alcohol Testing 

It is always risky if anyone drives commercial vehicles under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Drug and Alcohol Testing is done only if the employer asks for it. Our doctors perform urine tests to check for drug and alcohol levels of the driver.
