Ready to book your DOT exam?

A Department of Transportation (DOT) physical is a medical screening that commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers are required to complete and pass to maintain a valid commercial driver’s license (CDL).

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), if you are a CMV driver, you must undergo a DOT physical conducted by a certified medical examiner and receive a medical examiner’s certificate (MEC) – also called a DOT health card. Without a valid DOT health card, you can lose your CDL. A certified medical examiner will issue you a DOT health card after you meet the DOT physical requirements. 

DOT physicals are highly regulated for the drivers’ safety and are designed to detect physical, mental, and emotional issues that can affect a driver’s ability to safely drive a commercial vehicle. Our physicals are completed by certified medical examiners, specially trained to understand the regulations and prevent drivers from being inappropriately disqualified and ensure the safety of the driver and the public. 




What is the cost of the DOT exam? The cost is $125 and is not covered by insurance
