A DOT physical is a medical examination required for commercial vehicle drivers in the United States. During the exam, a provider determines the driver’s emotional, mental, and physical capability to operate a commercial motor vehicle. The exam includes reviewing the driver’s medical history, physical examination, and laboratory testing as required. The provider will also evaluate the driver’s vision, hearing, blood pressure, and overall physical condition to ensure that the driver can operate a commercial vehicle safely.
Most commercial vehicle drivers are required to undergo a DOT physical at least every two years, and some more often depending on their medical history.
