What to Expect During Your DOT Physical Exam

3 Easy Steps

A DOT physical exam is a simple process that involves medical history, the exam, and the necessary paperwork.

STEP 1. Medical History: You will fill out a brief one-page medical history detailing past illnesses, diseases that run in your family, and your overall health.  We have these forms for you at our clinic.

  • Measurement of height and weight
  • Measurement of blood pressure and pulse
  • Range of motion test
  • Eye and ear examination

Note: You will NOT be tested for drugs or alcohol during a routine physical.

STEP 3. Paperwork for Certificate: Once your medical history and exam are complete, the clinic will fill out all the necessary paperwork to process the exam results. After you successfully pass the physical and completion of paperwork, you’ll get your DOT medical certificate to keep with you at all times when you’re driving.
