DOT Medical Exam

Federal law requires drivers of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) to receive regular physical examinations. DOT physicals are designed to detect physical, mental, and emotional issues that can impact a CMV driver’s ability to safely spend long hours on the road.

What drivers should expect for the exam

A DOT exam will include an evaluation of an employee’s vision, hearing, blood pressure/pulse rate, and overall physical ability.
