We comply with the medical requirements and standards set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to ensure that all of our truck operators conduct themselves as safely as possible. Each new driver must take a drug test and thorough physical exam that meets or exceeds these standards. You are required by law to disclose all treatment, medications and medical information with the doctor that is conducting your DOT physical.
Some basic requirements are:

Eyesight: 20/40 or better in each eye (with corrective lenses if needed)
Hearing: Must be able to hear a forced whisper at 6 feet
Diabetic: Sugar levels must be well controlled with an A1c level of 10 or less. If you’re on insulin, you will need form MCSA-5870 which can be found on the FMCSA website.
Heart Related Issues: You will need cardiology clearance and possibly recent stress test or echocardiogram results.
This list is not exhaustive of every disqualifying medical condition, medication or treatment. Please discuss your concerns with your primary care physician before you arrive at Prime.
