Commercial vehicle operators are legally obligated to undergo Department of Transportation (DOT) medical exams at a minimum of once every two years. These physicals are crucial to the continued safety of commercial drivers. Soteria Screening Laboratories offers these exams nationwide through the EOHN.
Effective May 21, 2014, only certified Medical Examiners can issue medical certificates to interstate commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers. Each of our medical examiners have been properly licensed to perform DOT physicals in adherence with DOT compliance. Since the change in regulation, any medical examiner who intends to perform DOT physicals must undergo proper training. This specialized training covers Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) advisory criteria and regulations as well as FMCSA physical requirements for commercial vehicle operators. The medical examiners are also required to pass a certification test to prove that they are capable of performing the physicals.
