A DOT physical exam is a medical screening that ensures your drivers have no health issues that could negatively impact their driving performance. It detects any physical, mental, or emotional issues that could hinder a driver’s ability to properly function for lengthy periods while operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV).
If your company employs CMV drivers, the Department of Transportation (DOT) requires them to complete and pass a DOT physical exam.
WHAT SHOULD A DRIVER EXPECT DURING A DOT PHYSICAL?
First, please note that your drivers do not have to abstain from eating before a DOT physical. During a DOT physical exam, a clinician will evaluate a driver’s vision, hearing, blood pressure, pulse rate, and overall physical ability. Part of the DOT physical will include a drug test.
