New England DOT Physicals Launches New Resources for Commercial Drivers
Reading, Massachusetts - September 1, 2021 /MarketersMedia/
"Quite a few newcomers to commercial driving think that once they've passed the written and physical tests for a CDL, they're indefinitely certified to drive commercial vehicles," noted Dr. Mugavero. "Even many long-time CDL holders aren't fully aware of what it takes to keep their licenses valid. That results in quite a bit of confusion and numerous drivers losing their certifications. We've been providing DOT Medical Exam services for local drivers for years, but we realized we could further help our patients and the communities we serve by offering additional resources for commercial drivers to help them better understand what it takes to maintain their certifications."
Among the resources New England DOT Physicals is making available to its patients are downloadable Massachusetts and New Hampshire self-certification forms. As of 2012, all commercial drivers are required to certify to their State Driver Licensing Agencies in which category of commercial driving they plan to operate. Known as self-certification, this form must be renewed every one to two years. Otherwise, the driver could lose his or her commercial driving privileges. Staff members can also assist patients with the self-certification process if needed.
