The Department of Transportation (DOT) requires all applicants to complete a comprehensive physical exam in order to acquire a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). This physical exam ensures that each driver is healthy and physically fit enough to operate a commercial vehicle without risk of injury to themselves and others.
