    What to Expect in your DOT physical

    To comply with state and federal regulations, all current or aspiring Commercial Drivers License (CDL) holders must undergo a comprehensive physical examination, adhering to Department of Transportation (DOT) standards.

    These mandated DOT Physicals occur biennially, ensuring employers assess their drivers’ fitness for safely operating large commercial vehicles both presently and in the foreseeable future.

    DOT Physical Exams

    During the exam, the medical examiner will review your medical history, perform a physical examination, and assess your vision and hearing.

    Once you pass the exam, you will receive a medical examiner’s certificate valid for up to 24 months. We will electronically submit your results to the CDL Information System (CDLIS)

    What Happens During the Physical Exam

    Your DOT physical at San Ramon Urgent Care & Clinic is thorough. Your provider reviews medical history, discusses medications, and performs various checks:

    • Listens to your heart and lungs
    • Examines your abdomen for abnormalities
    • Conducts a hernia check
    • Monitors blood pressure, pulse, and cardiovascular health
    • Administers a drug test
    • Conducts a vision test for 20/40 acuity in each eye
    • Assesses hearing
    • Performs a neurological exam for coordination and reflexes
    • Checks for spinal deformities
    • Examines throat and mouth for swallowing or breathing issues

    Mental and emotional health is also evaluated to ensure safe commercial vehicle operation. If you pass, you receive a two-year medical card, though shorter durations may apply. Failing means no certificate issuance. Your safety is our priority.

    It was nice to find a place open on a weekend. I was seen on time, they accepted my insurance, the physician and staff were both personable and professional with my care. I would gladly use this office again.

    I would highly recommend. Being from out of town, you never know what you're going to get, but I've been here twice, both with excellent results.
