DOT/DMV Physical Instructions

We offer convenient, affordable DOT/DMV Physical Examinations for commercial drivers. Federal regulations guided by USDOT require everyone pursuing a commercial divers license to pass a series of physical qualifications. A Certified Medical Examiner must administer these tests before an applicant can be considered for a license.

All drivers need to bring a complete list of their medications, including the doses and their doctor’s names and addresses. To ensure a fast and smooth exam, please bring all pertinent documents for any of the conditions below:

  • Drivers with vision or hearing problems need to bring their eyeglasses, contacts or hearing aids
  • Drivers with diabetes need to bring their most recent lab results from their Hemoglobin A1C and their blood sugar logs.
