Federal law mandates that if you want to get a CDL, you must take the Department of Transportation (DOT) examination, which is only given by a certified physician. The exam allows the DOT to determine whether any medical conditions could hinder your ability to safely drive a commercial motor vehicle in the future. If you pass, you are usually cleared to have your CDL for two years and then you will have to be re-certified.
Health Express offers the DOT physical exam and has a schedule that allows you to get seen and on your way quickly. There is no need to call your primary care physician and make an appointment days or weeks in advance. Stop by Health Express and get your exam done on your schedule.
Quick and Easy First Time DOT Physicals and Re-Certifications
The basics of the DOT exam include:
