The Department of Transportation (DOT) requires all applicants to complete an comprehensive physical exam in order to acquire a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). This exam ensures that each driver is healthy and physically fit enough to operate a commercial vehicle without risk of injury to themselves and others. AFC Urgent Care offers DOT physicals on site and will assist you in filling out the necessary medical documentation for your new or renewed CDL.

DOT physical requirements include the following and more:

  • Each eye must be at least 20/40 with or without vision correction.
  • Blood pressure less than or equal to 140/90.
  • Ability to distinguish standard traffic signs and colors.
  • No evidence of use of habit forming drugs.

Medical conditions that may dismiss you from acquiring a commercial driver’s license:

  • History of Epilepsy
  • Diabetes
  • Vision or hearing function worse than stated above
