Do You Need A Department Of Transportation Physical?

Licensed Medical Exams For CDL Drivers

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.

Dr. Collin Struble is a Certified Medical Examiner (CME) dedicated to helping you with your DOT exam.  It's best to call for an appointment, but we are happy to help with walk-ins and same day appointments if needed. Exams are only $79.99. We will provide you with a receipt for tax purposes or for reimbursement by your employer.


This is what you should expect during your examination:

1. Forms: You will be greeted by our friendly office staff and given the medical examination form. (supplied by us)

2. General Information: Our form has a list of general information questions about you.

3. Health History: You will be asked a series of questions about your past medical history.

4. Examination Procedure: The exam should take about 25 minutes.  Dr. Collin will perform tests based on state guidelines and medical standards.  We want to help you maintain your medical certification. 
Along with a physical exam, the following tests will be performed:

  • VISION Check: You will be asked to read a vision chart to assure that you are able to see traffic signs and signals.

  • HEARING Check: Please clean your ears before your visit so that Dr. Collin can examine your eardrum.

  • BLOOD PRESSURE Check: Your blood pressure must meet state guidelines.

  • URINE: You will be asked to urinate in a cup to check levels for blood sugar, protein, blood and specific gravity, so make sure you drink plenty of water prior to your exam.

Our office is conveniently located in Boise, Idaho on the northwest corner of Maple Grove and Fairview.  We look forward to seeing you!
