What to bring to your DOT/CDL Physical Exam

Be sure to bring a list of your current medications (if any) when you arrive for your DOT Physical Exam. If possible, it is also recommended you bring a copy of your most up-to-date medical records, including information on any hearing or vision disorders. These conditions do not automatically rule you out for a successful DOT physical, but keeping them hidden from a physician could result in serious consequences in the future.

DOT physicals follow a plan laid out by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), and will test for the following:

  • Vision disorders
  • Hearing disorders
  • High or low blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Vascular disorders
  • Physical disability
  • Neurological disorders
  • Lung disease
A DOT Physical is only valid if conducted by a FMCSA-certified physician and our physicians have been certified to perform them. A physical will generally remain valid for 24 months and can be renewed anytime before that period.
