The Department of Transportation is incredibly strict about who they will give a license to. Those who are licensed through the Department of Transportation must undergo a physical every 24 months in order to qualify for a renewal. Many people have questions about the Department of Transportation physicals. One of the most common questions is; who needs a DOT physical anyway? Men’s health physicals in Tucson, including DOT physicals, can be performed at Men’s Vitality Clinic in Tucson, AZ.
Men and women who operate a motor vehicle with a weight greater than 10,001 pounds are required to undergo a physical every 24 months to keep their CDL. This license is a specialized, Class A trucking license. Men and women who operate any vehicle that carries more than 15 passengers must have a valid CDL license. Also, individuals who transport hazardous materials must obtain a CDL license through the Department of Transportation.
This means that bus drivers, airport shuttle drivers, long haul truckers, certain construction truckers, and many others must obtain a physical from the Department of Transportation. The DOT has put out articles and paperwork that make preparing for a physical a relatively easy experience. These physicals must only be completed by a qualified medical professional; M.D, D.O, physicians assistant, or nurse practitioner. For those who have heart, hormone, cancer, or bone issues, you must be cleared by all physicians before clearance will be granted.
