DOT Physicals

A DOT physical is an exam that’s required for commercial vehicle drivers by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).  The physical must be performed by a licensed "medical examiner" listed on the FMCSA National Registry.  Dr. Britney is certified and has been performing DOT Physicals for the last 7 years.  The goal of this exam is to determine whether an applicant is healthy enough to drive safely now and in the foreseeable future.

Upon passing of the DOT Physical Exam, you will receive your Medical Certificate which may be valid up to 2 years.
