What is a DOT Physical Exam?
A DOT Physical Exam determines whether or not a driver is physically able to safely operate a commercial motor vehicle. The physical exam evaluates a driver’s medical history, vision, hearing, blood pressure, respiratory system, & physical attributes. Drivers may be medically cleared for up to two years, with some exceptions that are determined by elements such as blood pressure and glucose levels.
FMSCA-CFR 391.41, Subpart E
Drivers who operate the following vehicles in interstate commerce require a DOT physical and medical examination:
- Vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), or gross combination weight rating (GCWR) of 10,001 pounds or more
- Vehicles designed to transport more than 15 passengers, or more than 8 passengers when there is direct compensation involved
- Vehicles transporting hazardous materials that require the vehicle to be placarded.
