Who can conduct a DOT Physical for a CDL?
The Department of Transportation (DOT) requires these exams, and the DOT physicals need to be taken at least every two years. In some situations, the medical examiner may issue a certificate for less than 24 months when a condition warrants it.
You may want to bring a copy of the DOT physical form (also known as a Medical Examination Report) to the examination, in case the examiner doesn't have one to use.
The DOT medical exam helps ensure that drivers are fit to drive commercial motor vehicles (CMVs), and helps keep our roadways safe.
