Licensed Medical Exams For CDL Drivers

The DOT Physical 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 and throughout the United States.

Upon satisfactory completion of your exam, you will receive a copy of the long form exam and your certification. We will forward a copy directly to the local Department of Transportation office for you, as well as enter your information into the nation database.

You should carry your 8-1/2" x 11" paper 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. Wallet sized copies are available but no longer necessary as your information is available through in the National database.  DOT certificates are typically issued for 2 years, however, 1 year certificates are given for patients with certain health risks. 

Dr. Collin Struble DC CME is a Chiropractic Physician , as well as a Federally Certified Medical Examiner (CME) dedicated to helping you with your DOT/CDL exam. He appreciates the chance to help you with your DOT exam each year, and offers same day chiropractic adjustments to accomodate you while you're here and to give you relief from pain associated with the job of being on the road.

It's best to call to schedule an appointment, but we are happy to help with same day appointments if needed.

Exams are only $79.99.
We accept cash or credit card for payment, and will provide you with a receipt for tax purposes or for reimbursement by your employer.

Here's what to expect during your examination:

1. Forms: 
We will provide the DOT compliant medical examination form for you to complete. We will also take a copy of your driver's license for verification. 

2. General Information:
The form will ask you to provide basic information like address, phone, email, whether you are a CDL holder or applying for one with the DMV, as well as other pertinent information.

3. Health History:
The form will ask you to provide your past and current medical history and medications, so be sure to have that information with you.

4. Examination Procedure
The exam will be performed by Dr. Struble, with the help of his assistant, based on state guidelines and medical standards.  This thorough exam will make sure that you are healthy and help you maintain your medical certification.
Along with a physical exam, the following tests will be performed:

  • VISION:  You will be asked to read a vision chart to assure that you are able to see traffic signs and signals.
  • HEARING:  Please clean your ears before your visit so that Dr. Collin can examine your eardrums.
  • BLOOD PRESSURE:  Your blood pressure must meet state guidelines.
  • URINE:  You will be asked to urinate in a cup so that the doctor can check levels for blood sugar, protein, blood and specific gravity for evidence of underlying health issues. Make sure to drink plenty of water prior to your exam. This is not a drug test. If you are required to get a drug test, there are local offices that can do that for you.
  • SLEEP APNEA:  If you have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea and prescribed a CPAP machine, please be sure to bring a print-out of your recent report for the doctor to review and verify.
