At Vermont CDL Exams you can expect a courteous staff and an efficient exam. We pride ourselves on our ability to stay on time and get you in and out of the office quickly so you can get back to work faster.
Please bring the following things with you to your appointment:
*Your driver’s license
*A list of your current medications and supplements
*Any paperwork your employer needs to have filled out
*Any medical records pertaining to an acute or chronic condition which may interfere with your ability to drive (some examples are: heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, seizures, other neurological disorders, breathing disorders, alcohol or substance abuse, orthopedic conditions/injuries, etc.)
*Anything else that you think might help the doctor determine your medical fitness for duty.
Upon arrival at the office, you will be asked to show your driver’s license and then weighed and your height measured. Afterwards, you will be asked to provide a urine sample.
Once you meet with Dr. Connolly you will have your vision and hearing tested, then go over your medical history (from the page you filled out upon arrival and any medical records you have brought). Your blood pressure will be taken and a thorough exam will be performed of your eyes, ears, nose, throat, heart, lungs, muscle strength, reflexes, sensation, spinal range of motion, grip strength, an abdominal exam and a hernia exam if necessary.
After your exam, Dr. Connolly will tell you if you have passed and, if so, she will issue you a laminated certificate card which you must keep on you at all times while driving. If any medical issues are detected during the exam, Dr. Connolly will explain them to you and instruct you on how to follow up on these conditions. You may be issued a temporary medical card if there are issues which require follow-up examination. It is very important to be aware of how long your certificate is valid. THERE IS NO GRACE PERIOD, so you will need to return to the office before the card expires in order to be able to continue working.
