Now in its Seventh Edition, The DOT Medical Examination: An Unofficial Guide to Commercial Drivers' Medical Certification, has been helping DOT Medical Examiners perform commercial driver exams for nearly 25 years. Completely revised and updated, this edition gives you all the information you need to conduct an efficient, accurate examination of a commercial driver.
