Used Truck Sales

Truck drivers have a new resource to prepare for exams that are required by the Department of Transportaion. The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) released a new Internet-based resource for truckers.

The new D.O.T. Doc website helps drivers get and stay informed when using the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners. Since May 2014, FMCSA has required that all DOT physicals be completed by an eligible Certified Medical Examiner.

OOIDA’s new website will allow drivers to search the database for physicians who are on the CME registry. Another helpful feature on the D.O.T. Doc website allows users to submit reviews of medical examiners and to search for reviews that other drivers have submitted.

“This website will provide a variety of resources to help drivers prepare for a visit to a certified medical examiner,” OOIDA Director of Regulatory Affairs Scott Grenerth said.

The site features 10 concise topics to help truckers prepare for their exam.

“The topics are meant to ensure people don’t repeat mistakes others have made and to make sure the driver is as informed as possible before stepping into a doctor’s office,” Grenerth said.

The website is: http://www.ooida.com/ReviewDoc.
