Our industry is regulated by the federal government and requires drivers to be physically certified by a DOT approved physician.

Your DOT physical (pre-employment medical exam) and drug tests will be scheduled at a location near you.

It's important to note that the drug testing includes both urine and hair follicle tests.

Use these tips for your physical and drug tests:

  • Disclose prior conditions, injuries, surgeries, etc. on the medical form. Read and follow instructions carefully.
  • Disclose any prescription medications you are currently taking and the condition they were prescribed for. Certain questions will require you to also disclose past conditions and medications taken.
  • The information you provide on the medical form must be complete and accurate.
  • You must be able to provide samples for the urine and hair follicle tests.

After you complete and pass the DOT physical, you'll progress to get your CLP.
