The DOT Physical Exam for CDL
It is mandated by federal guidelines that all commercial drivers pass the DOT exam. The goal of this exam is to check whether an applicant is fit enough to drive safely at the present time as well as in the forseeable future. Passing the exam successfully usually means you only have to take the exam in 24 months time, although in some cases this period might be shortened in case that serious health issues might appear in the future. Our DOT/CDL physical exams meet FMCSA requirements.
Our office has also partnered with Choice DNA, the largest professional drug, alcohol, and paternity testing lab in the country-located in the same building as our office. Our office also has partnerships with other imaging and lab facilities in the area as well.
