Why Physicals Examinations are Needed for CMV Drivers?
For commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers, the most important safety feature is the driver. Each time a truck driver turn the key, they are responsible for their own safety, as well as the safety of all the people who share the road with them. The physical examination the driver take for their medical certificate confirms that they are healthy enough to safely perform the demanding job of a CMV driver and keep our Nation’s roads safe.
All DOT (Department of Transportation) physical examinations have to be made by a licensed medical examiner that can vary from a doctor to practice nurses. At Access Health Systems, all our providers are trained and DOT certified. All DOT physicals are valid for up to 24 months. Make an appointment online now or call us today at 518-782-2200.
