Ohio DOT Physical Exam For CDL

Federal guidelines mandate that anyone applying for a commercial drivers license must pass the DOT physical exam. The goal of this test is to determine whether an applicant is fit enough to drive safely now and in the foreseable future. Passing the exam successfully means you have 24 month before you need to do it again, although in some cases this period might be decreased if serious health problems could appear in the future.

Health Requirements

Here are the basic requirements for passing the DOT physical exam.

  • Need to have 20/40 correctable vision in each eye as well as both combined. Vision correction devices such as glasses or contacts are allowed.
  • Must be capable of distinguishing colors found on traffic signals.
  • Hearing should be good enough to notice a forced whisper at a minimum distance of 5 feet.
  • Maximum allowable blood pressure is 160/100. Use of prescription medication to achieve this threshold is permitted.
  • An applicant can have diabetes which is controlled through diet or medication. Diabetes which is controlled though insulin injections is not premitted
  • The maximum level of blood sugar an applicant is allowed to have is 200.
