Working as a commercial motor vehicle driver can be physically demanding. Because the hours are long and erratic and the work environment of being on the road entails huge risks, the Department of Transportation (DOT) requires a physical examination to ascertain that drivers are prepared for the demands of their jobs.
According to the regulations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), commercial motor vehicle drivers who operate a truck that weighs 10,000 pounds must successfully pass a DOT physical every two years.
