Dr. Brandon Webb is a Nationally Registered Medical Examiner who has met all FMCSA regulations to administer DOT physical required to get or maintain a CDL license. As of May 21, 2014, all interstate CMV drivers must have their physical examination performed by a certified medical examiner listed on the National Registry.
The National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (National Registry) is a Federal program that establishes requirements for healthcare professionals that perform physical qualification examinations for truck and bus drivers. To become a certified medical examiner (ME) and be listed on the National Registry, healthcare professionals must complete training and testing on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) physical qualifications standards and guidelines.
After completing the physical examination, if you pass all Federal requirements, you will recieve a laminated Medical Card that is required for licensing at the DMV. Physicals typically take less than an hour but be sure to bring all health history and current medications to make the process go more smoothly.
