What to Expect During the DOT Physical
When you arrive for your DOT physical, be sure to bring a list of your current medications (if any). If possible, it is also recommended you bring a copy of your most up-to-date medical records, including information on any hearing or vision disorders. These conditions do not automatically rule you out for a successful DOT physical, but keeping them hidden from a physician could result in serious consequences later on.

A successful DOT examination remains valid for 24 months. Exams must be completed by an FMCSA-certified physician. If you have any questions call us at (978) 922 – 2171!
