We are an authorized clinic in Texas offering affordable and comprehensive DOT Physical Exams for commercial vehicle drivers. Our highly experienced examiners conduct a physical fitness test to check if the driver meets the requirements, as stated by the U.S. Department of Transportation. We help the commercial drivers in obtaining and maintaining a valid DOT medical card.
What are DOT physicals
DOT physicals are the Department of Transportation (DOT) exams specially designed for the drivers of commercial vehicles. These exams are mandatory and ensure that the drivers are in good condition to drive commercial vehicles like trucks, buses, and other large vehicles. These tests check the physical and mental health of the driver. These tests include hearing and vision testing, drug testing, standard physical test as well as a complete review of the medical history of the driver. The medical examiner then determines if the driver meets all the requirements or not. The drivers should be medically certified at least once every two years.
Who needs DOT physicals
The drivers whose job impacts their own safety, as well as the safety of the general public, need a DOT exam. These exams are for anyone who:
- drives commercial vehicle carrying 9-15 passengers
- drives a vehicle whose weight is more than 10000 pounds
- transports hazardous materials
What happens if you fail DOT physicals
Even if you fail the DOT physicals it does not necessarily prohibit you from driving the commercial vehicle. You talk to the doctor about your disqualifying condition. If the condition can be improved with the treatment, consult it with your doctor and try again.
