DOT Drivers

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requires that interstate commercial motor vehicle drivers maintain a current Certified Medical Examiner's Certificate to drive.

Only a Certified Medical Examiner (CME) on the national registry can provide this certification. As part of this physical, you may be asked to participate in a sleep study if the CME suspects you have Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). If you are diagnosed with OSA, you will need to begin therapy and will need to prove that you are adhering to that therapy before you will be issued a current Certified Medical Examiner's certificate. SleepWorks' program is designed to be manage and coordinate the entire process for diagnosis, treatment and documenting treatment compliance in order to get you back to work as quickly as possible.
