DOT/CDL Physicals

That’s why we provide comprehensive physical examinations that meet DOT standards to ensure CDL holders remain healthy and up to date with their medical requirements. Our team is comprised of highly trained medical professionals and certified examiners who are available to handle any medical questions our CDL drivers may have. We can make the process of obtaining and keeping a valid CDL hassle-free. Our office will provide professional and knowledgeable DOT-certified examiners to complete your exam quickly — usually within an hour.
