What to know about DOT physicals
DOT physicals are performed to evaluate key health characteristics, like hearing, vision, reflexes and blood pressure. During your visit, you’ll be asked questions about your medical history and receive a physical exam to check for any visible signs of health concerns. A urine test will also likely be performed. To help get ready for your physical, be sure to keep the following tips in mind:
- Bring any hearing devices, glasses, or contact lenses that you use with you.
- Avoid smoking or drinking caffeinated beverages at least 30 minutes prior to your visit, as this may affect blood pressure readings.
- Take a list of all medications you use, along with the name and number of the prescribing physician.
