Department of Transportation (DOT) certification is another of our specialties. The Federal Government requires DOT examination and certification for all commercial drivers. The regulations are quite detailed and complex.
All of our providers have had special Federally approved training and testing and are licensed by the Department of Transportation to perform these evaluations. AFC Urgent Care Burlington offers Department of Transportation (DOT) Physicals with no appointment needed. These physicals are required by those seeking a Commercial Drivers License (CDL). Current CDL drivers are required to complete an exam every two years.
What does a Mass. DOT Physical Evaluate?
Commercial drivers in Massachusetts need updated DOT physicals because they evaluate if individuals are healthy enough to drive large commercial vehicles.
Most DOT exams measure chronic disease indicators including substance use/dependency, vision, blood pressure, blood sugar, and many others. Drivers will need to have these conditions stable and under control in order to effectively secure their renewed CDL.
The Massachusetts DOT physical exams evaluate and measure one’s ability to safely drive a vehicle in the following:
Blood Pressure Measurement
