Have Questions About DOT Physical Requirements? FastMed Has Answers!
Will there be a drug test during my DOT physical exam?
Not always. However, some companies do require a drug test as part of the DOT physical exam. In these instances, the medical professionals at FastMed are equipped to test for drug traces in your urine such as marijuana, cocaine, opiates, amphetamines/methamphetamines, and phencyclidine. If you test positive for any of these, you may fail the DOT physical exam.
What other evaluations can I expect from my DOT physical exam?
- Blood pressure
- Blood sugar
- Alcohol levels
How long is my DOT physical exam valid?
Generally, if you meet all of the DOT physical requirements and pass your DOT physical exam, the results are valid for 24 months. However, in the case of a particular medical condition needing to be monitored, a medical examiner’s certificate could be issued for a lesser time.
