Department of Transportation (DOT) Physicals


At Memorial Hermann Medical Group, we offer physicals that help commercial drivers fulfill regulatory Department of Transportation and Department of Public Safety requirements. Anyone who is obtaining a commercial driver’s license (CDL) must take the Department of Transportation (DOT) medical exam by a legally certified medical professional. The physical enables the DOT to determine eligibility for driving a commercial motor vehicle. If you pass your physical, you are typically cleared to have a CDL for two years and then you will have to be re-examined and re-certified.

At Memorial Hermann Medical Group, getting your DOT physical is easy and convenient.
