DOT Exam Requirements
Sensory ability and blood levels are the main areas tested during a DOT exam. These measures are crucial for safe driving where the ability to respond quickly and effectively to emergency scenarios on the road is imperative. The requirements for Department of Transportation examinations for commercial drivers include tests for:
- Hearing acuity (must be able to detect a loud whisper at a distance of 5 feet)
- Overall vision and visual acuity (must be correctable to at least 20/40)
- Good color vision
- Urine test to measure your blood levels of glucose, protein, and sugar levels
- Blood pressure (140/90 maximum)
Those taking a DOT exam should bring any relevant documentation regarding their health as well as a list of any medications being taken. Caffeine and tobacco should be avoided in the hour or so before the exam, as these stimulants can skew the test results.
In some cases, exemptions are possible for some of the testing areas and parameters. Our Wayne chiropractic office will advise if you are eligible for any of these and also make key recommendations for improving your health going forward.
