What is a DOT exam?

DOT stands for Department of Transportation. The Department of Transportation requires a medical examination to make sure you qualify to drive a commercial vehicle in the state of Idaho.  Once you pass, you will receive a copy of the exam and your certification. We will forward a copy directly to the local Department of Transportation office for you.  You should have the certificate with you at all times while driving your company vehicle, and your employer will want to take a copy for their files as well.

If your employer requires this test, call now to schedule. This test is to find out if you qualify to drive a commercial vehicle in the state of Idaho. After you pass, you will receive a copy. Our staff will also complete a medical examination report for you.
