Our buddies over at the online CDL training website eGears posted a great new video about DOT physical qualifications. If you're considering getting a CDL or attending truck driving school soon, you should educate yourself about the DOT medical requirements. This DOT physical video addresses the basic medical qualifications and any questions you have should be addressed by a physcian or a medical professional familiar with your personal situation. In other words, I'm not a doctor and I don't play one on the Internet, so please don't post personal medical information or questions in the comments section of this blog. You can watch the video on the eGears site by clicking on the image below.
Make sure you watch the DOT Physical video above. It's written in plain English, not "doctor speak." You can actually understand it. And the more educated you are about the CDL and all CDL requirements, the better decision you can make about starting a truck driving career.
