    Got my DOT physical appointment tomorrow and printed out the paper from I noticed that one of the pages is a Medical Exam Certificate just like our small one we carry, except its 8 1/2 by 11 inches. Otherwise its the same. Do we still need the small card or has something changed since I last got a physical?

    Yes, you still need the small card, which will be given to you upon the completion of your exam and which you must carry with you at all times.

    If you can't make it to the office UPS has certified me to do home physicals.

    No, that is your new small card. Several drivers here in Freight have just gone to the yard and used our copy machine to shrink it down, otherwise that is your new small card.

    I heard the card is just going to be electronic now.

    Rick Ross I'm into distribution!!

    Make sure it's completely filled out. My last physical I went to the doctor and had to go back to the hub to get the paperwork printed on their computer.

    The other dispatcher told me that I couldn't print it on my home computer because not all of the fields will print. That was about a year ago, might have changed or be different in your area.

    Your dispatcher was incorrect. You should have no problem printing out all of the necessary paper work on your home computer. The only question is whether you want to waste your ink and paper or UPS's ink and paper.

    Went for my last DOT exam today and was certified for the 2 year card. It expires 8/31/18---I retire 7/1/18.

    The light at the end of the tunnel just got a bit brighter.
