What is a DOT Physical?
DOT physicals are regular examinations required by Federal law for commercial motor vehicle drivers. Also known as the “Department of Transportation Medical Examinations,” DOT physicals are regulated for the drivers’ safety and are highly controlled. These physicals measure mental, physical, and emotional issues that could affect a driver’s ability to drive a commercial vehicle safely. Our DOT medical professionals are highly trained to understand the regulations and ensure drivers are not inappropriately limited.
How to Prepare
It’s extremely important that drivers come completely prepared for their exam. If you wear eye glasses, contact lenses, and/or a hearing aid, you must bring them. Have a list of any medications you take, including doses and contact information for the prescribing doctor(s). If you suffer from any other medical condition, you may be required to bring additional information (call ahead if you have questions). You can also download and complete the Driver sections of the the Medical Examination Report form.
What to Expect
During your DOT Physical, a certified examiner will review your medical history, perform a thorough physical exam. The examination includes an evaluation of a driver’s hearing, vision, blood pressure, and overall physical ability, as well as urinalysis. If you pass the DOT physical, we issue your Medical Examiner’s Certificate on the spot.
Understanding new DOT Form Requirements and Regulations
