What to Expect With a DOT Physical

During your appointment for a DOT physical, the examiner assesses your physical and mental health to ensure no medical conditions will interfere with your ability to drive and operate a vehicle safely.


The doctor performs a series of tests to check your blood pressure, vision, hearing, digestive, and mental health. You might also undergo urinalysis for diabetes and drug testing.


A DOT physical can take between 30 minutes and one hour to complete. Drivers who have existing medical conditions are urged to bring the appropriate related documents and items with them to the appointment.


Drivers are required to disclose all known health conditions with their doctors at the time of the DOT exam. Failing to disclose certain health conditions can result in disqualification for a DOT medical card and legal fines, in some cases.


Those who complete and meet the requirements of a DOT physical receive a DOT medical card or certificate valid for up to 24 months.[9]
