Passing the CDL/DOT Occupational Physical


Prior to renewal of Medical Certificate

Posted on April 3, 2016 at 11:01 AM
Just a few tips to make it a little less stressful. 
  • A driver with diabetes MUST have a copy of the latest A1C percentage (within the last 90 days).                                                                                                                   
  • A driver with high blood pressure must bring a list of medications and doctors information.
  • A driver with any heart or lung issues must bring a list of medications,  doctors information and a medical release to  operate a CMV (commercial vehicle). The letter must say driver is cleared to drive a commercial vehicle!
  • A driver with a BMI > 33-35%  with a neck > 17" (male) or with a neck >16" (female) MAY require further testing to rule out sleep apnea.
  • A driver currently using a CPAP for sleep apnea, must bring in percent compliance printout from machine or company.
  • AFTER RENEWAL: The driver is responsible for providing his or her licensing state with updated information of each new medical exam certificate, the little card not the long form!
  • Doctor will provide the same information to NRCME federal data base.
  •   Mail certificate to: CO Dept. of Revenue, Attn. CDL Unit,  1881 Pierce St., Lakewood, Co. 80214  you can fax it to  (303) 205-5709

Call in a couple of days to confirm that they received it : 303-205-5829
  • I hope this will help make you CDL physical a little less stressful. We are very proud of our truckers and appreciate all of your hard work!

I am not a driver but am on disability with back problems and I pass by the office on Hwy 85 in pierce regularly. I finally stopped in one day and talked with Patty, she was very helpful spending time to understand what I had going on and giving me great advice and referred me to Dr. Lowe. I came back and met with Dr. Lowe who also took a great deal of care understanding what my issues were. She then gave me a thorough chiropractic adjustment and I feel so much better, I slept so good last night. Thank you Patty and Dr. Lowe for caring enough to help and not just get me out the door.
