Driver Friendly-No Unnecessary Tests

The Day of the DOT Physical Exam:

  1. Bring the medical records you’ve prepared in advance, including your list of medications.

  2. Remember to bring eye glasses (it’s surprising how many people forget this).

  3. Cutting back on caffeine and nicotine can help improve your blood pressure.

  4. Avoid salty foods you eat and not adding salt to your food can also help to lower your blood pressure.

  5. Drink water. Come with a need to pee. 

  6. Do not take any energy drinks, this will likely cause an increase in blood pressure.
