A Department of Transportation (DOT) Physical is an examination mandated by FMCSA for Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) Drivers. A DOT Physical helps determine if a driver is physically, mentally, and emotionally capable to operate a commercial vehicle for long hours. Once the DOT physical is passed, the Certified Medical Examiner will issue a health certificate.
