Department of Transportation Physicals are required for anyone with a Commercial Drivers License (CDL) or Commercial Learners Permit (CLP). They are a great idea for anyone that drives a vehicle for a living, even if it isn’t on a CDL. Some other employers may also require a physical depending on the job requirements. For more info about who is required to have a DOT physical visit the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Home Page.
The main concern is to figure out if there is a medical condition that could put you out of commission while driving. There is never a good time to have a heart attack or stroke but having one while hauling a full load at 75 mph is a really bad time. DOT physicals are meant to keep you and the other drivers safe on the road. The main objective for one of these physical exams is to reassure the government that an individual does not have any underlying or overt medical conditions that would inhibit them from safely operating a vehicle for long periods of time.
Upon calling to schedule an appointment for a DOT exam our office will send you a text message that provides you with a link to fill out for our 3b Exam Department of Transportation website portal.
