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.

Employers cannot have drivers out on the road without a valid DOT card. That means that you can’t legally do business unless your CMV driver is cleared for the road. Because of this, DOT physicals are a must-have if you’re a commercial driver or employ commercial drivers. They help ensure your drivers will be safe on the road, and compliant with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
