Default Dot physical & color blind test

I have to take a DOT physical this week (CDL-A license) and I just found out there is a color blind test involved. Well, I'm red/green color blind. Not black & white color blind but could be wearing a pink shirt and not know it color blind.

I know there are a lot of truckers that frequent this site so I'm hoping one of you guys may be able to describe the test for me. Anyone pass the color test with red/green color blindness?

I you can't tell the difference between red and green you shouldn't be driving a big truck.... Those are kinda importiant colors.

red and green would seem kind important..





How bad is yours? Some people are "color deficient" and can still see the colors, they just look different to them. I have heard of people going to U of M medical center and getting a letter stating that they can see colors. I know it works for government jobs, DOT might be the same. I am unable to pass 80% of that stupid dot test, but colors look ok to me. I dunno.

Like on this page here, I can only see the 25 in the top left corner. The rest are just dots.

Your link isn't working for me, I've taken many of those stupid online tests. I guess color deficient would describe it better. I always fail the red color test but half the time can see the # correctly on the green portion.

EDIT: Ok now the link is working. I could see the 25 and 56. Ugh!

yes there is a color blind test. I am color blind and do drive for a living. ALL the law states is that you have to be able to see primary colors. I have had to argue with a few doctors on this but have won them all.

How do they do the test? Is it like the online test where there are a bunch of dots and you are supposed to be able to pick out and recite a # or object?
