What to Expect During Your DOT/CDL Exam

A DOT exam is a simple and hassle-free three-step process that involves taking your medical history, performing the exam, and completing the necessary electronic “paperwork” to get you on the road!

Step One: Medical History

To provide an idea of your general health and family background, you'll be asked to fill out a brief medical history electronically detailing past illnesses, diseases that run in your family, and your overall health.

Step Two: The Exam

Once you’ve provided your medical history our team will review the information you’ve provided, go over any medical conditions you may have, and perform a basic urinalysis test. As part of the exam, he’ll also:

  • Measure your height
  • Weigh you
  • Take your blood pressure and pulse
  • Test your range of motion
  • Examine your eyes and ears
  • Check your breathing

Step Three: Certification

The final step in the process is certification. Once your medical history and exam are complete, the office will fill out all the necessary paperwork to process the exam results. When you leave the office, you'll get a copy of the exam to take with you when you get your CDL, and a second copy to give to your company. We’ll also keep electronic records in our office for future reference and use. And after all the paperwork has been processed, you'll get your very own DOT medical certificate to keep with you at all times when you're driving.

Note: If you need a copy of the DOT exam faxed to your company, please have the fax number handy.

Preparing for Your Physical

A DOT physical at Integrated Body and Medicine only takes about 30 minutes. We accept cash, all major credit cards, and company checks. To prepare for the exam, compile all your medical records, put together a list of any medical conditions you’ve been diagnosed with, prepare a list of medications and the name of the prescribing doctor, and take note of any medical devices that you require.

On the day of the exam, you'll have to bring all of this with you. Here's a checklist of things you should bring (where applicable):

  • Photo identification
  • Medical records
  • List of medications, including strength and dosage, for both prescription and over-the-counter drugs
  • Eyeglasses
  • Hearing aids
  • Copy of your most recent stress test (for heart conditions)
  • Copy of your latest sleep test result (for sleep apnea)
  • Contact information, including names, phone numbers, and fax numbers for all your doctors

Right before your exam: Make sure you drink a glass of water and come in with a full bladder, as you will have to provide a urine sample.

Tips on Managing Your Blood Pressure

We understand that lots of people don’t like doctors, hospitals, and medical exams and that anticipating your appointment may elevate your blood pressure. But we work with drivers all day and understand how important it is for you to pass your DOT exam. To help prepare yourself for the appointment, here are things you can do in the days and weeks leading up to your exam:

  • Take your medication every day as prescribed and on schedule
  • If you forget a dose, take it as soon as possible if that’s what your doctor recommends
  • Tell our team if you’ve recently missed a dose so that he can recheck your pressure later on or the following day
  • Reduce your caffeine, nicotine, sugar, and salt consumption
  • Remember that you won’t actually find a single white coat in our clinic!

Give our office a call - in most cases, we can get you on the same day. If you're on a tight schedule and want to make sure there's a spot open, call our team in advance to book an appointment for a DOT physical, a drug and alcohol test, or a regular adjustment.
