DOT Physicals in Stoneham, MA

If you hold a Commercial Drivers License (CDL), you are required by federal law to undergo physical examinations every two years in order to maintain your license. The physical is a check to make sure that the driver can safely and properly operate a commercial vehicle without causing harm to themselves or others. At AFC Urgent Care Stoneham, you will be able to receive your biannual physical during a walk-in visit.

What is Checked During a DOT Physical?

During your DOT physical, your provider will perform the following:

  • Vision test
  • Blood pressure check
  • Whisper test
  • Blood sugar test

Your provider may also perform a routine drug screen at your employer’s request to check for substance abuse problems or higher-than-therapeutic levels of prescription medications. This will be separate from your DOT examination.
