A DOT physical exam is valid for up to 24 months. The medical examiner may also issue a medical examiner’s certificate for less than 24 months when it is desirable to monitor a condition, such as high blood pressure.
If the medical examiner finds that the person he/she examined is physically qualified to drive a commercial motor vehicle, the medical examiner will furnish one copy of the results to the person who was examined and complete a Medical Examiner’s Certificate. It is the patient’s responsibility to provide copies of this certificate to their employer.
