Employee applications asking for DOB

In all of my previous positions our applications did not ask for an employees date of birth. I believe this was to avoid the possibility of us being accused of age discrimination.

However, in my new position I have CDL A & B drivers that are subject to DOT regulations. The company's current application asks for their date of birth. I have searched and found other applcations for DOT that also ask for their age. But the applications for non-DOT positions do not ask for DOB.

I've tried the DOT web site and others but can't find anything on why the DOT applications ask for DOB.
