Who Can Perform a DOT Physical?
A Department of Transportation (DOT) physical exam is conducted by a licensed “medical examiner.” This includes doctors of medicine (MD), doctors of osteopathy (DO), physician assistants (PA), advanced practice nurses (APN), and Doctors of Chiropractic (DC)!!!!!
The Physical Exam Includes:
- Height & Weight
- Blood Pressure
- General Physical Examination of the mouth/throat, lungs, heart/pulse, abdomen/hernias, spine/muscular system, and neurological exam.
How Long is my Physical Good For?
A DOT physical exam is valid for up to 24 months. The medical examiner (your chiropractor, in this case) may also issue a DOT Physical Certificate for less than 24 months when it is desirable to monitor a condition, such as high blood pressure.
For Your Records:
If the doctor finds that the person they examined is physically qualified to drive a commercial motor vehicle (CMV), the doctor will furnish one copy of the results to the person who was examined and complete a Medical Examiner’s Certificate (page 9 of the Medical Examination Report). If a driver wishes the Certificate to be in card form, they may: Purchase a separate “medical card” from an industry supplier of motor carrier forms (e.g., State trucking association) before the physical exam and ask the medical examiner to complete and sign it, in addition to the Medical Examination Report form; or print the Certificate on cardstock paper. It is permissible to reduce the size of the Certificate.
