CDL DOT PHYSICALS EXAM
CDL DOT PHYSICAL EXAM
To obtain a commercial driver license (CDL)
in the state of Florida, you need to do the following:
Have two forms of Identification when applying at a Highway Safety and Motor Vehicle office
(appointments are recommended).
Have available your social security number.
Proof of of your residential address.
Must be at least 18 years of age.
Meet medical eligibility requirements and show a valid Medical Examination Report.
Pass all of the required tests.
Pay the applicable fees.
Your examination results need to be recorded on a DOT Physical Form by a licensed medical examiner such as a Doctor of Chiropractic. Our chiropractic office has these forms. However, just to be sure, you can download your DOT Medical form from various sources online (including the federal government) and take it with you to the doctor’s office.
You must pass the DOT physical in order to qualify for a CDL as your health plays an important factor in driving safety, especially considering the vehicles you’ll be driving.
