When a student is thinking about enrolling in a CDL driving school in Cicero, it is important to make sure that all of the medical requirements are met. These requirements are the same as those for holding a commercial driver’s license. In particular, there are three important areas that students should make sure that they will pass.

First of all, there will be a drug screen. It is very important to not fail the drug screen once since it could make it nearly impossible to get a truck driving job for many years.

Secondly, entering students should test their blood pressure at the doctor’s office or at one of the blood pressure testing machines in grocery stores and pharmacies. If there is high blood pressure that is not controlled by medication, that will lead to disqualification of the CDL. It is very important for entering students to make sure that they don’t have hypertension.

Finally, entering students should consider getting a vision test prior to attending CDL driving school in Cicero. All entering students need to make sure that the vision in both eyes meet state requirements. If necessary, the prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses should be updated so that it is possible to pass the vision test.

Although there are other medical requirements, these three requirements are why some entering students are not able to begin their studies in the truck driving school.
