Okay so I'm not really a doctor but I do want to discuss medical qualifications that a CDL holder is required to meet the d-o-t physical is the most important qualification for any CDL driver because it's intended to help ensure the safety of the CDL driver and other drivers sharing the road the Department of Transportation requires all CDL holders to receive periodic physical examinations from an approved DoD medical examiner the DoD medical exams look for certain pre-existing medical conditions that might impair a CDL drivers ability to safely operate a commercial motor vehicle a medical examiner's certificate which is commonly called a DoD medical card provides proof the CDL driver has met the medical requirements to hold a CDL a potential CDL driver must hold a DoD medical card before a CDL permit can be issued so let's discuss what the DoD medical exam covers the guidelines I'm about to address are very basic and any question should be addressed by a medical professional familiar with your physical condition a CDL driver must have 2040 correctable vision in each eye the key here is correctable vision and that means eyeglasses or contact lenses are okay a CDL driver cannot be a diabetic requiring needle injected insulin diabetes controlled by diet may be permissible in some instances a prescription blood-pressure drug can be used to control high blood pressure the blood sugar level of a CDL driver must be under 200 the use of a narcotic or any other habit-forming drugs will prevent you from passing the d-o-t physical into current diagnosis of any cardiovascular disease or cardiac issues may require you to provide additional information from your doctor there are some other conditions or factors that may be revealed during the d-o-t physical exam that could prevent a driver from obtaining the d-o-t medical card those conditions include sleep apnea a recent back injury a recent major surgery or a current hernia now these are just some basic guidelines and subject to change if you have any concerns about the information mentioned above contact your primary doctor to determine if you meet the d-o-t physical requirements
