What are DOT physicals?
Federal law requires drivers of commercial motor vehicles (DMVs) to receive regular physical examinations. These exams are defined as the “Department of Transportation Medical Examinations.” DOT physicals are highly regulated for the drivers’ safety. They detect physical, mental, and emotional issues that can affect a driver’s ability to safely drive a commercial vehicle.
DOT medical examiners are specially trained to understand the regulations and prevent drivers from being inappropriately disqualified. Our DOT physicals are performed by board-certified, NRCME-certified clinicians who are dedicated to continuing education in the latest healthcare issues, trends, and treatments.
