What to Bring with You
While the exam itself won’t take long, it’s important that you arrive fully prepared in order to prevent delays in receiving your DOT medical certificate. Some medical conditions may make it necessary for you to provide additional information and/or medical records, such as:
1) Eye glasses, contact lenses, or hearing aids
2) A list of your current medications.
Prescriptions for pain, anxiety, attention deficit disorder, etc., require documentation/letter from the treating provider, including contact information and treatment recommendations while performing your job duties.
3) Medical records for conditions such as: diabetes, cardiac disease, sleep disorders, neurological conditions, etc. If you have questions, please call us.
Per federal requirements, we are unable to provide a DOT certificate at the end of your exam without first reviewing these medical records.
