DOT PHYSICAL EXAMINATIONS
The purpose of the DOT history and physical examination is to detect the presence of physical, mental, or organic conditions of such a character and extent as to affect the driver's ability to operate a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) safely.
A Department of Transportation (DOT) physical examination is conducted by a certified "medical examiner." The term includes, but is not limited to, doctors of medicine (MD), doctors of osteopathy (DO), physician assistants (PA), advanced practice nurses (APN), and doctors of chiropractic (DC).
A DOT physical examination is required for any person carrying a commercial driver's license (CDL) and drives a truck, bus drivers, and CMV drivers.
