Many motor carriers assume that as long as their business doesn’t employ CDL drivers who operate Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMVs) with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) or Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR) of over 26,000 pounds, that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations don’t apply to them. In actuality, most regulations apply to businesses that operate vehicles with a GVWR/GCWR of 10,000 pounds or more. (See Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR) Part 390.5 for the FMCSA’s complete definition of a commercial motor vehicle.) Who needs a Driver Qualification File? Any driver who operates a vehicle with a GVWR/GCWR of 10,001 pounds or more, transports at least 8 passengers including the driver, or who transports hazardous materials that require placarding is required to have a file containing their qualification documents. (See 49 CFR Part 391 for the complete regulation). Driver Qualification Files Most businesses keep employee documents in one personnel file. But businesses that are regulated by the DOT also need to have a Driver Qualification File containing specific records and documentation that demonstrates the employee is safe enough, healthy enough and qualified to operate a CMV. This includes owner-operators as they are considered employers AND employees. DOT Employment Application As an owner-operator, it may seem nonsensical to fill out an employment application for yourself. However, as stated above, the FMCSA considers owner-operators as employers and employees and therefore, all of the Driver Qualification documentation (including an employment application) must be completed. Most businesses use employment applications that are acceptable to the FMCSA, but it is important to know what specific information is required that may not be included on standard applications, such as: •Three years of employment history. There cannot be any gaps in time and must include any time spent unemployed, as a student or incarcerated. (It is important to note here that if an applicant is applying for a job operating a vehicle with a GVWR/GCWR of 26,000 pounds or more, they must list 10 years of employment history.) •The extent and nature of the applicant’s experience operating any type of motor vehicle. •Any/all moving violations received over the previous three years. If no violations were received, a statement indicating such. •Any/all accidents the applicant was involved in over the previous three years. If no accidents occurred, a statement indicating such. •The applicant must indicate any circumstances that resulted in a denial, revocation or suspension of any license to operate a motor vehicle. If no denial, revocation or suspension occurred, a statement indicating such. Medical Certification The employer must obtain a copy of the applicant’s current and valid medical certification. Drivers are required to undergo a DOT medical evaluation at a minimum of once every 24 months. It is the employer’s responsibility to keep track of certification expiration dates in order to ensure that drivers are consistently physically qualified to operate CMVs. Commercial Driver’s License or Road Test Certification A copy of the applicant’s current and valid driver’s license must be obtained. If the applicant holds a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL), a copy of that is sufficient. If no CDL is required, employers must retain evidence that the driver successfully completed a road test in the type of vehicle being operated. It is the employer’s responsibility to keep track of license expiration dates in order to ensure that drivers are consistently qualified to operate CMVs. Safety Performance History Investigation This investigation must be run on an applicant for the previous three years for all DOT- regulated positions he or she may have held, and must contain the following: •Written authorization from the applicant allowing the investigation to be conducted. •Responses from any DOT-regulated employers. If previous employers do not respond to the inquiry, documentation must be included that outlines what attempts were made to obtain the information. •If the applicant did not hold any DOT-regulated positions, documentation indicating such. Initial Annual Motor Vehicle Reports (MVRs) Also known as “driving records,” this report is a critical aspect of the Driver Qualification File. The MVR must be run on an applicant for the previous three years in all states the applicant held a license. It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure MVRs are run no less than once every 12 months. Annual Review of Driving Record and List of Violations Along with the annual MVRs, employers must require drivers to submit a list of any moving violations they received over the previous 12 months. If no violations occurred, documentation must be maintained that the employee has indicated such. After reviewing the MVR and List of Violations, the employer must maintain documentation of this driving record review. Confidentiality of Records and Retention Requirements The FMCSA requires all confidential records – such as the Safety Performance History Investigation – to be maintained in a secure environment with limited access. All Driver Qualification Files must be maintained for the duration of an individual’s employment and for three years thereafter. Setting up and managing Driver Qualification Files can be time consuming, and it can be easy to miss all the details.

DOT Physicals: The Department of Transportation requires all Commercial Drivers License (CDL) holders to receive periodic physical examinations, officially called a “Department of Transportation Medical Examination,” to ensure the ability of the driver to safely operate a commercial vehicle. Who Needs a DOT Physical? You are required to have a physical exam and carry a U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) medical certificate if: • You operate a motor vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) or gross combination weight rating (GCWR) or gross vehicle weight (GVW) or gross combination weight (GCW) of 4,536 kilograms (10,001 pounds) or more in interstate commerce. • You operate a motor vehicle designed or used to transport more than 15 passengers, including the driver, in interstate commerce. • You operate a motor vehicle designed or used to transport between nine and 15 passengers, for direct compensation, beyond 75 air miles from your regular work-reporting location, in interstate commerce. • You transport hazardous materials in quantities requiring placards, in interstate commerce. The US Department of Transportation sets the following guidelines: • CDL holders (Drivers) must have 20/40 correctable vision in each eye. Glasses or contact lenses are permitted. • Drivers cannot be a diabetic on needle-injected insulin; diabetes controlled through a diet or oral medication is permitted. • A driver’s blood pressure must be under 140/90. Prescription medication to control blood pressure is permitted. • Use of a Schedule 1 drug, amphetamine, narcotic or any other habit forming drug is not permitted. If a driver has a current diagnosis of cardiac insufficiency, collapse, congestive cardiac failure or any other cardiovascular disease, he/she will be required to provide the Medical Examiner with a stress test (performed within the last 12 months) along with a release from the driver’s physician stating that he/she can drive a commercial motor vehicle without restrictions. The Department of Transportation also requires clearance for drivers that have been diagnosed with the following conditions: sleep apnea, recent back injury, recent major surgery, a current hernia, Nervous or Psychiatric disorders or have had recent workers’ compensation claims. How Long is Exam Valid? A DOT physical exam is valid for up to 24 months. The medical examiner may also issue a medical examiner’s certificate for less than 24 months when it is desirable to monitor a medical condition. If the medical examiner finds that the person he/she examined is physically qualified to drive a commercial motor vehicle (CMV), the medical examiner will furnish one copy of the results to the person who was examined and complete a Medical Examiner’s Certificate. You must carry a current copy of your medical examination certificate with you when you drive.We perform DOT Physicals Tired of Waiting on your current DOT Physicals by one of our National Registry Certified Medical Examiners.
