A DOT physical is a health examination mandated by the state for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers. A DOT physical helps determine if a driver is physically, mentally, and emotionally fit to operate a CMV.
If you are a commercial driver, you are a “safety-sensitive” employee. For your safety and the public’s safety, the state requires you to complete and pass a DOT physical to maintain a valid commercial driver’s license (CDL).
The Department of Transportation sets the DOT physical requirements that a CMV driver must meet to pass their DOT exam – Concentra is legally required to follow these criteria when performing the physical.
The state only allows certified medical examiners to perform DOT physicals. Every Concentra medical center has at least one CME on staff – our CMEs undergo extensive training and are certified by the state to perform DOT physicals.
