Did You Know?
- In compliance with the DOT requirements, a DOT physical examination must be administered by a licensed medical examiner.
- A DOT physical exam is actually valid for up to 24 months. Your particular medical examiner may need to issue a certificate for less than 2 years due to a medical condition such as high blood pressure that may require additional screening in a shorter period of time.
- Once you are found fit to drive a commercial motor vehicle (CMV), your medical examiner will provide a copy of your DOT physical exam results showing you passed the examination as well as a certificate.
Department of Transportation regulations require all persons who conduct physical exams for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers to be properly trained, certified and registered.
What are DOT Physicals?
Any drivers of commercial motor vehicles — also known as DMVs — are required by federal law to get a physical examination regularly. These physical exams are highly-regulated and intended to determine the mental, physical, and emotional readiness of a DMV. Medical examiners are trained to fully comprehend complex federal regulations of DOT physicals.
Regularly receiving a DOT physical ensures drivers are adhering to all applicable laws and prevents accidents on the road by disqualifying unfit DMVs.
