The DOT Physical Process

A certified examiner at Get Well Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine will review your medical history and perform a physical exam. In order to obtain a DOT medical certificate, you will need to meet various health requirements, including:

  • Unimpaired vision and hearing
  • A negative drug test
  • Healthy blood sugar levels
  • Regular blood pressure and pulse

The provider may also check your current alcohol level.

Based on your physical, the examiner will determine if you can perform the demanding job of a CMV driver. He or she will then fill out the Medical Examination Report for Commercial Driver Fitness Determination form, along with all supporting documents. If you pass the DOT physical, we issue your Medical Examiner’s Certificate on the spot!
