DOT Physical Q & A

A DOT, or Department of Transportation, physical exam is an exam during which a qualified doctor, physician assistant, or advanced practice nurse determines whether or not you’re physically qualified to drive a commercial motor vehicle.

DOT physicals ensure that the folks driving semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles can safely transport their goods and drive. They’re an important component of road safety.

You may need a DOT physical if you:

  • Haven’t had one in two years
  • Have developed an illness that might impair you
  • Were recently injured
  • Need to qualify as a new commercial motor vehicle driver
  • Were previously found to not be physically qualified to drive a commercial motor vehicle

During a DOT physical, your medical examiner starts by asking you a series of questions related to:

  • Your medical history
  • Any medical conditions
  • Your current medications

They also examine you for signs of potential lifestyle-related risks, including:

  • Obesity
  • Alcoholism

Your medical examiner then performs tests, including:

  • Urine analysis for medical problems like diabetes
  • The “whisper” hearing test
  • A vision test
  • A hernia test
  • A blood test to check for conditions such as high blood pressure

Some companies also require your medical examiner to test your urine for the presence of drugs and/or alcohol.

To make sure the appointment is productive, bring a list of any medications you’re taking, including dosages, as well as any hearing aids and/or prescription eyewear.

Typically, if you pass your DOT physical, your results are valid for up to 24 months. Sometimes, your medical examiner issues a certificate that expires more quickly. This is the case when you have a medical issue that requires more frequent checkups, such as high blood pressure.

If you need a DOT physical, turn to UrgentMed, with locations in Davie and Plantation, Florida. The practice offers inexpensive services, world-class care, and access to attorneys. To learn more, schedule an appointment with UrgentMed online or over the phone.
