    The Video on the New DOT Form was GREAT. It answered all my questions. Particularly the Determination Pending Section. The video can be paused, rolled back, and a segment viewed again – Excellent. Well worth it.

  • Excellent review of a somewhat confusing topic! (Exemptions), Another great review of a potentially confusing topic (Neuro). These lectures are succinct and well presented. They are a blessing for all of us in the trenches trying to make difficult decisions on a daily basis. Again, I thank you!

    Just listened to the presentation. I was quite impressed. And after OM residency, boarding and 30 years or so of practice, I’ve followed FMCSA regs for awhile. And I’ve heard my share of presentations on driver exams. I must say, yours was excellent. Style and content both spot on. What I thought was particularly useful about the presentation is that it had information of value to old timers like me… as well as the newbies. Well done. I work in a system with a bunch of primary care docs. I’m about to send a reminder about the changes in process. I’ll include a link to your presentation in case anyone wants a refresher.
