What Are DOT Physicals Man Doctor Exam

What ARE DOT PhysicalS? 

Federal law requires drivers of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) to receive regular physical examinations under the Department of Transportation. DOT physicals are highly regulated for the drivers’ safety and are designed to detect physical, mental, and emotional issues that can affect a driver’s ability to safely drive a commercial vehicle. Concentra’s DOT medical examiners are specially trained to understand the regulations and prevent drivers from being inappropriately disqualified.
    DOT Physicals Are Essential Construction Worker


    • Employers cannot have drivers out on the road without a valid DOT card
    • Only a CME can administer a DOT physical.
    • A DOT physical is required when a driver operates a CMV across state lines (i.e., interstate driving).
    • Employers of intrastate drivers (i.e., drivers who stay within one state) are subject to the physical qualification regulations of that specific state.
    • The National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME) has a current list of CMEs.
