DOT Physicals for Commercial Drivers

A DOT physical is a mandatory health examination required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) for commercial vehicle drivers. Its purpose is to demonstrate that a driver is medically qualified to operate a commercial motor vehicle safely. At Doctors Plus Urgent Care, we will perform comprehensive physical examinations at our Concord urgent care clinic.

What Occurs During a DOT Physical

Our straightforward evaluation process will determine if a driver meets the necessary health requirements.

  • Vision and Hearing Tests – To ensure a driver meets the vision and hearing standards necessary for safe driving.
  • Blood Pressure and Pulse Measurement – Identify any concerns with hypertension or heart rate that could affect safe driving.
  • Urinalysis – A urine test to check for signs of diabetes or other (perhaps hidden) health conditions.
  • Physical Examination – A thorough health check examining neurological, cardiovascular, respiratory and musculoskeletal components.

We can also perform drug screenings at our Concord clinic for pre-employment and work-related exams.

Common Questions About DOT Physical Exams

Along with a current driver’s license, the items to bring with you to a DOT physical include a list of your medications (if any), glasses and/or contact lenses, hearing aids and so on. Also, if you have been diagnosed with a chronic medical condition, bring your medical records and related documentation.

Commercial drivers need to get a DOT physical every 24 months. In some cases, a medical certificate may be valid for a shorter period of time if you are dealing with a condition that requires monitoring.

After passing your DOT physical you will receive a DOT Medical Examiner’s Certificate (the DOT medical card). You must carry this when driving commercially and give a copy to your employer.
