Dreaming of leaving NYC for the open road? Get your DOT physical examination.

Many people wrongfully discredit the work of commercial drivers in this country. An astonishing amount of work and organization goes into ensuring our things get delivered on time and in one piece. We often take for granted the amount of travel our goods make before ending up in our home. Some products experience thousands of mileage prior to the short ride they take in the trunk of your car from the store to your driveway, going from manufacturing plants, to wholesalers and then to retailers and other distribution centers sometimes 2,000 miles apart. The men and women driving across state and county lines hauling everything from video games, vegetables, motor boats, diesel fuel and milk have a vital part in keeping our economy going, through good times and bad.
Have you ever considered joining the commercial driving workforce? The field offers good pay with some excellent benefits. A typical job listing for a truck driver will offer up to $70,000 a year, with medical, vision and dental benefits, paid vacations, and opportunities to invest in 401(k) retirement plans that the company will match. Many companies even offer tuition reimbursement for your driving school. All you need to start is go to medical office NYC show proper driver’s license and a certified Dot Physical Examination and you’re ready to hit the road.
All registered vehicles are protected by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which sets limits on consecutive driving hours in an effort to reduce injury for drivers, passengers and other commuters. When you’re guiding an 80,000 pound 18-wheeler at 50 miles an hour with other commercial cars, trucks and family wagons next to you on a highway, your mental awakeness on the road isn’t just a labor law issue, it’s a matter of life or death. So driving the heavy burden comes with lenient labor laws designed to keep drivers alert, happy and well rested. For example the longest consecutive driving time is 11 hours during a 14-hour period, meaning you’ll be driving for 11 hours with three hours’ worth of breaks in between. It’s not bad, especially if the rest stops have good pie.
To further maintain road safety the FMCSA also requires commercial drivers to have a physical examination at least every two years that proves there are healthy enough to manage a giant truck or bus on the road. Thus if you’re interested in getting paid to cruise the country in a 16-wheeler for a few years and you currently live in the tri-state area, you should get a certificate for a Dot Physical Exam NYC. This certification process involves a simple exam to prove you meet the all the physical health driving standards commissioned by the US Department of Transportation (DOT). Your health provider must fill out and sign this form before you can be hired by any registered driving company.
