How long is my DOT physical valid?

A DOT physical is valid for up to 24 months. However, the specific length of time that a DOT physical is valid can vary depending on the individual’s specific health conditions and any medical conditions that may disqualify them from performing safety-sensitive duties.

What happens after my DOT physical?

If the medical examiner finds that you are physically qualified to drive a commercial motor vehicle, the medical examiner will furnish one copy of the results to you and complete a Medical Examiner’s Certificate. It is the patient’s responsibility to provide copies of this certificate to your employer.

*If you fail to pass your exam due to misrepresentation or a disqualifying medical condition, you will still be responsible for paying for your DOT physical.
