The leading provider of DOT physical examinations for Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holders nationwide, New Era Drug Testing’s certified team is here to ensure a seamless and efficient DOT physical process.

What is a DOT Physical?

Aside from the required federal motor carrier safety administration (FMCSA) and DOT drug and alcohol testing, we also specialize in performing DOT physical examinations that adhere to all DOT regulations.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) mandates a DOT physical for all individuals with CDLs. Potential Commercial motor vehicle operators that will operate vehicles at or above a gross combination weight rating (GCWR) of 10,000 pounds must also undergo DOT physicals as part of their commercial motor vehicle certification.

According to 49 CFR 391.43, its purpose is to evaluate drivers’ physical and mental health in order to determine if they are qualified to drive commercial vehicles safely.
