The Department of Transportation (DOT) requires commercial vehicle drivers to have physicals administered by medical professionals who have been trained by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
It is the employer’s responsibility to verify the medical professional is registered. To find a certified medical professional near you, visit the FMCSA National Registry. You can also use this resource to make sure the National Registry number belongs to a valid, registered physician.
