Do you need a Commercial Driver License Medical Exam? Operating a truck, bus, or Commercial Motor Vehicle safely requires skill, experience, physical ability, and training. You have passed a skills test as well as a knowledge test in order to qualify for your Commercial Driver’s License. Keeping safety and caution as your priorities have aided you in staying certified.

You will also need to have an up to date medical certification to hold your license. But, do you know if yours is up-to-date?

If your medical certification has expired or will expire soon, you will need to receive a new physical exam.

Mountain Medical wants to help you keep your certification by staying up-to-date on your physical exam!

Prepare for the Exam

Before your Commercial Driver License Medical Exam, you will need to gather some information and items that Mountain Medical requires you to bring to your visit.

Please remember to bring:

  • Photo ID
  • Your DOT/CDL permit number
  • List of your current medications
  • Glasses and hearing aids (if applicable)
  • CPAP machine compliance report (if applicable)
  • Sedating medication safety letter from your prescribing doctor (if applicable)
  • If using insulin, a diabetes letter from your doctor
  • Purchase order or authorization from your company (if the company is paying for your exam)

As a courtesy, Mountain Medical would also like to remind you that commercial insurance does not usually cover this type of visit. However, if you are in need of more information about what kinds of visits are covered, you can contact your insurance company.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone at 541-399-7799 or by email through the form on the Mountain Medical website. Our website also features links to medical examination forms as well as medical exemption forms that may be helpful for you to access.

For Your Records

If you are found to be physically qualified to operate a Commercial Motor Vehicle by the medical examiner, one copy of these results will be given to you. In addition, a Medical Examiner’s Certificate will be completed. This information will also be uploaded to the FMCSA website.

Drive Safely!

Please drive safely, and remember, Mountain Medical is here for your physical exam renewal when you need it next.
