DOT and Non-DOT Physicals

If you are looking for a trusted clinic to help in ensuring your employees get the right exams and certifications, we can help.

DOT and Non-DOT Physicals Overview

Hattiesburg Clinic Occupational Medicine is committed to the health and safety of employees in the workplace. As part of that effort, we are proud to offer DOT and non-DOT physicals to individuals operating commercial vehicles.

Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals are required to ensure drivers can operate commercial vehicles safely without putting themselves and the public at risk. These exams are performed by DOT-certified medical examiners to make sure drivers are emotionally and physically fit for the job.

If you have or plan to get your Commercial Driver’s License, this will be required. Federal laws ensure that drivers who operate commercial vehicles complete and pass the DOT physical exam. You will be required to take a test and pass every two years to continue driving.

Accuracy and reliability are crucial when it comes to DOT and non-DOT physicals. That is why it is important to go to a place you can trust. Hattiesburg Clinic can help! We proudly serve employers and drivers throughout South Mississippi.

What is Included in a DOT Physical?

DOT physicals will consist of several different things, including:

In most cases, drivers will receive the results of their exam on the same day.  If issues arise during the exam, further testing and evaluation may be required. Your certified DOT medical examiner will be able to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

What is a Non-DOT Physical?

A non-DOT physical is like a DOT physical but not mandated by law. However, many employers require this to make sure drivers can safely operate vehicles required for work. The DOT exam has specific requirements, where a non-DOT physical is a basic physical and mental health examination that may be customized based on the employer and job requirements. These exams help ensure employees meet the standards required for the job. It is also very important in helping to prevent accidents.
