CDL Physical Examination
Disorders of the musculoskeletal system affect driving ability and functionality necessary to perform heavy labor tasks associated with the job of commercial driving. Medical certification means the driver is physically able to safely drive and perform nondriving tasks as described in the driver role section of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Medical Examination Report form.
Drivers have a multitude of job demands. The least physically demanding part may be the actual driving. For example, the duties of a commercial driver may include loading and unloading, making multiple stops, driving cross-country and in heavy city traffic, working with load securement devices, and changing tires.
Other common driving tasks include:
  • Manipulating the wheel.
  • Shifting gears.
  • Maintaining pressure on the pedals.
  • Braking.
  • Monitoring traffic.
Other job tasks include:
  • Performing pre- and post-trip safety checks.
  • Ensuring the vehicle is loaded properly.
  • Securing the load.
  • Evaluating and managing vehicle breakdowns.
  • Responding to emergency situations.
