D.O.T. (Department of Transportation) Physicals Q & A

What is a Department of Transportation physical?

If you’re a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) driver, namely a bus driver or truck driver, the U.S. Department of Transportation requires you to a pass a thorough physical examination given by an accredited healthcare professional. The DOT maintains a national registry of accredited health providers who have undergone CMV physical exam training. Hudson’s Bay Medical Group is an accredited medical provider that can help get you back on the road if you’re a CMV driver in need of a physical.

Why do I need a Department of Transportation physical?

Studies show that CMV drivers who overlook certain medical conditions have serious road accidents. The program to train accredited healthcare professionals, like those at Hudson’s Bay Medical Group, is helping to ensure that if you’re a CMV driver, it’s safe for you to drive. This helps reduce accidents and makes life for everyone out on the road much safer.

What can I expect during my Department of Transportation physical?

A DOT physical is similar to a routine physical. Your Hudson’s Bay Medical Group provider examines your overall health to make sure you don’t have any serious, disqualifying medical conditions that could inhibit your ability to drive safely. There are some variations that make a DOT physical different than a routine physical. Your provider at Hudson’s Bay Medical Group inspects the following:

  • Vision (colors, peripheral)
  • Blood pressure
  • Pulse
  • Spine
  • Balance
  • Reflexes
  • Hearing
  • Range of motion
  • Urine test (check for illegal substances)

Your DOT physical shouldn’t take long, unless your physical exam uncovers something serious worth discussing further with you.

Do I need to provide proof that I passed to the state driver licensing agency?

Yes, you do. If you pass your DOT physical at Hudson’s Bay Medical Group, your provider gives you a medical certificate, which is valid for 24 months. The certificate includes Hudson’s Bay Medical Group’s national registry number.

As a CMV driver, you’re responsible for providing your medical certification to the state agency that issued your license. If you’re in need of medical certification, call or click to schedule a DOT physical.
