About DOT Physicals
The DOT and the FMCSA require CMV drivers to complete and pass a periodic DOT physical in order to maintain a valid commercial driver’s license (CDL). The regulations are intended for the public’s safety and must be performed by a certified medical examiner or physician’s assistant. With Rolln’Ready, you can get fast and effective DOT physicals that ensure your drivers meet all DOT guidelines.
What’s included in a DOT physical?
A driver’s ability to safely operate a commercial motor vehicle is impacted by his/her mental, emotional, and physical health. The DOT physical includes a review of past medical history and medications as well as a comprehensive physical including BMI, vision, hearing, color-blindness tests. A DOT health card or medical examiner’s certificate is issued and placed in the national data bank once the comprehensive physical examination is successfully completed.
