DOT physicals

What is a DOT physical or CDL physical exam?

A DOT physical, also called a CDL physical, is a test of your general health, mental and emotional well being and is a requirement that is mandated by federal law for anyone planning to drive a commercial motor vehicle (CMV).

Passing a DOT physical exam will ensure that a CMV driver is fully equipped to handle the physical demands of operating a commercial vehicle, including the long driving hours, hectic and exhausting schedules, and the stress that goes along with it.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)—the organization that sets regulations for the trucking industry—requires drivers of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) to receive physical exams regularly. The FMCSA only allows certified medical examiners (CMEs) to perform DOT physical exams.
