    What to Expect in Your DOT Physical

    To meet state and federal regulations, all current or aspiring Commercial Drivers License (CDL) holders must undergo a comprehensive physical examination, following Department of Transportation (DOT) standards.

    These required DOT Physicals take place biennially, ensuring employers assess their drivers’ fitness for safely operating large commercial vehicles both presently and in the foreseeable future.

    DOT Physical Exams

    The medical examiner will review your medical history, conduct a physical examination, and assess your vision and hearing during the exam.

    Once you pass, you’ll receive a medical examiner’s certificate valid for up to 24 months. We’ll electronically submit your results to the CDL Information System (CDLIS).

    What Happens During the Physical Exam

    Your DOT physical at Manteca Urgent Care & Clinic is thorough. Your provider reviews your medical history, discusses medications, and performs various checks:

    • Listens to your heart and lungs
    • Examines your abdomen for abnormalities
    • Conducts a hernia check
    • Performs a neurological exam for coordination and reflexes
    • Checks for spinal deformities
    • Examines the throat and mouth for swallowing or breathing issues
    • Monitors blood pressure, pulse, and cardiovascular health
    • Administers a drug test
    • Conducts a vision test for 20/40 acuity in each eye
    • Assesses hearing
    • Mental and emotional health is also evaluated to ensure safe commercial vehicle operation. If you pass, you receive a two-year medical card, though shorter durations may apply. Failing means no certificate issuance. Your safety is our priority.

    This place is great! People act like an Urgent Care is a Kaiser or Sutter. Dr. Raj and the ladies there are great. I've been going here for 3 years and even made Dr. Raj my primary care. I have gotten MRIs, blood work, referrals to sleep study and pain doctor all through them. May be wait a little bit but that's expected. I have been referring my family to go to dr rajesh.
