DOT Physicals are available in all areas of the United States. DOT Physicals are required for all CDL drivers operating a vehicle with 9 or more passengers or a Gross Vehicle Weight Rate (GVWR) of 10,001 or more pounds. Our network of physical providers includes FMCSA-certified providers included on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME). This is a quick physical exam with a medical history questionnaire and the examiner will talk to you to make sure you are mentally, emotionally, and physically able to operate a commercial motor vehicle (CMV). The exam includes checking vitals, a hearing test, a vision screening, and a quick urine dipstick test to rule out any medical issues.
