What is a Dot Physical?

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.
