What is DOT physical exam?
The DOT requires all commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers or those who are applying for Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) to receive periodic physical examinations. The purpose of DOT physical examination is to ensure your own safety, as well as the safety of all the people who share the road with you. Hence during the physicals your overall health and physical condition is evaluated to ensure that you don’t have any health issues that would interfere with your ability to drive safely.
Only medical professionals who are listed on the FMCSA National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners can issue you a certificate. They have had the proper training in FMCSA regulations to determine if you’re fit enough to drive safely and fortify that you’re not wrongly disqualified.
A DOT medical card is valid for two years if the driver meets all the FMCSA standards. If you have a health condition that may inhibit your ability to drive, you may receive only a 1-year certificate. In certain conditions if your health issue is treatable, you may receive a 3-month certificate. After 3 months, if you show signs of improvement in medical condition, you’ll be eligible to get a 1 or 2-year certificate.
