Commercial Driver’s Licenses (CDLs) are required for those who drive large commercial vehicles, such as tractor-trailers, buses, and tanker trucks. In order to obtain and maintain a CDL in Ohio, drivers must pass a physical examination to ensure they are physically fit to operate a commercial vehicle.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires CDL holders to undergo a CDL physical examination every two years. The exam must be performed by a licensed medical examiner listed on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners. The purpose of the exam is to determine if the driver is able to meet the physical demands of operating a commercial vehicle safely. Our NCRME Dr. Wise is professional, qualified, and thorough.

The physical examination covers several areas, including vision, hearing, blood pressure, heart rate, and overall physical condition. The DOT physical exam also checks for conditions that could impair a driver’s ability to operate a commercial vehicle, such as sleep apnea, diabetes, and neurological disorders.
