If you are not driving, you’re not making money!!! The Department of Transportation (DOT) requires commercial motor vehicle (CMV) operators to have the DOT physical exam to maintain their driver certification. The DOT deems professional drivers who operate commercial vehicles of five tons or more as 'safety-sensitive' because they can affect both their safety and the public's safety. Drivers must provide periodic physical examination reports to maintain compliance and continue working. Certified Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) medical examiners can perform the DOT physical. We follow the specific guidelines of the FMCSA to ensure that commercial drivers are in satisfactory health and able to work safely.
