Federal law requires drivers of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) to receive regular physical examinations under the Department of Transportation. DOT physicals are highly regulated for the drivers' safety and are designed to detect physical, mental, and emotional issues that can affect a driver's ability to safely drive a commercial vehicle. Dr. Lawrence Ross is a Nationally Certified Medical Examiner for the Department of Transportation and is specially trained to understand the regulations and prevent drivers from being inappropriately disqualified.
It is illegal for a commercial driver to be out on the road without a valid DOT medical card. It is also illegal for an employer to utilize someone's CDL services if they do not have a valid DOT card. That means, you can not legally do business unless your CMV driver is cleared for the road. Because of this, DOT Physicals are a must-have if you are a commercial driver or employ commercial drivers. These exams help ensure your drivers will be safe on the road, and compliant with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
