What Does a DOT Physical Include?
The DOT physical exam includes a vision and hearing test, a blood pressure and pulse rate check, and a urinalysis. The urinalysis is intended to detect indicators of certain health concerns and is not used for drug testing purposes. In addition to the physical portion of the exam, the provider will also ask you questions about your medical history, including whether you’ve ever experienced:
- Hearing loss
- Vision problems
- Fainting or dizziness
- A spinal cord injury
- Epilepsy or seizures
- A brain injury or neurological disorder
- Alcoholism or drug abuse
- A heart attack or heart disease
- Respiratory issues
- Psychiatric disorders
- Kidney disease
- Chronic pain
- Missing limbs
Once your DOT physical is complete, the provider will let you know whether you meet the requirements. They will then fill out a medical examination report to be submitted to the Department of Transportation. DOT physicals are typically valid for two years before they need to be updated.
