Department of Transportation (DOT) Physicals and Drug/Alcohol Screenings

Many professional drivers are required to get physicals on a regular basis. Our certified practitioners make it easy for commercial drivers to fulfill (DOT) regulatory requirements.

Everything you need to know about the exam

When you become a truck driver you are required to have a DOT physical. If you are going to be operating commercial motor vehicles a DOT physical exam is required. Drivers need to be able to safely operate their vehicle and a DOT physical ensures there are no health issues which would prevent that from happenings.

What to expect during a DOT physical

Your DOT physical is going to look at your current health status as well as your medical history to determine if you are physically fit to drive a commercial motor vehicle. The following tests are all part of the overall exam:

  • Vision and hearing tests
  • Blood test, to check for high blood pressure or other medical conditions
  • Urinalysis, as part of drug and alcohol testing

These are all included in the DOT exam as well as a current physical examination.

What should I bring with me?

To make sure you have everything covered and your medical history is complete you will want to bring the following with you:

  • Medical history
  • List of prescription medications, and dosage, that you currently take
  • Glasses or let them know if you wear contacts
  • Hearing aids

How often is a DOT physical required?

CDL drivers must take the DOT physical every two years. If you have a condition that needs monitoring, such as high blood pressure, you may be required to get a physical more often. Once you have passed your DOT physical the doctor in charge will give you a certificate. If your employer needs a copy directly from the physician you can sign and waiver and have them request that.

Pre-employment Screenings

Some jobs require you to be more physically active than others. For these jobs, it’s common for an employer to request that you get a pre-employment exam before you start work. Pre-employment exams are performed after a company has made you an offer. Like a drug test, it’s one of the final steps in a hiring process.

What happens during a work-related physical exam?

During a work-related physical exam, a IMC Immediate Medical Care provider will check your overall health and look for possible symptoms of illness or chronic conditions that may keep you from performing the duties of your job. The tests your provider recommends will depend on the type of physical examination being conducted. You’ll review your medical health history and job information with your IMC Immediate Medical Care provider, if applicable. Your provider will usually check:

  • Vital signs – such as blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature.
  • Your heart – to detect possible signs of heart disease.
  • Your lungs – to listen for any wheezing or difficulty breathing.
  • Your abdomen – to check on the health of your liver, bowels, and other organs.
  • Your skin – skin problems can be signs and symptoms of other underlying illnesses.
