Department of transportation physical exam in New York


We offer official Department of Transportation (DOT) physical exams at our Washington Heights location, administered by a certified medical examiner (ME). This exam is a requirement for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers in order to confirm that drivers are healthy to safely perform their jobs, as stated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration National Registry (FMCSA).


Your Visit and Certificate of Completion

Our certified medical examiner will provide a comprehensive DOT medical history review, physical exam and administer a Medical Examiner’s Certificate of completion on the same day as your visit (as long as no other testing or referrals are required).


DOT physical exam certificates are valid for up to 24 months. However, if there is a need to monitor a condition such as high blood pressure or diabetes, the medical examiner may issue a certificate for less than 24 months.


Please bring your driver’s license to your appointment.


Exam Cost

DOT physical exams are available for $150 at the Nurse Practitioner Group. Note that DOT physical exams are not covered by insurance.
