Save Money

We have helped employers reduce workers comp costs by as much as 75% with workers compensation claims down by up to 66%.

Quality Support

We are dedicated to providing the highest quality of care in the most professional manner.

The driver will also perform basic medical exams including:

Blood pressure measurement

High blood pressure can put you at risk for a variety of health problems. It puts strain on your heart and arteries and can cause heart attack or stroke.

Vision check

Aside from a vision test, the provider will also be looking for proper eye dilation and appropriate movement.

Hearing test

Hearing loss is a common problem, especially as we get older. It’s important for commercial drivers to be able to hear things like emergency sirens while on the road.

Urinalysis for glucose levels and drug screen

Urinalysis is necessary for drug testing, and to check the driver for medical conditions like diabetes.

What happens after the exam?

After the driver passes the physical exam, their certification is good for two years. That is, unless they have an exemption—a health status that won’t keep them from driving but may necessitate more frequent physical exams.


The driver will receive a copy of the Medical Examiner’s Certificate and their DOT Physical forms will be sent electronically to the Department of Transportation.
