I was so thankful for the doctor’s at afc I was sick and called a telemedicine doctor they said I just had a virus I kept feeling worse so I went in to the doctor at afc and I had pneumonia they gave me the right medication and treatment and I finally started feeling better. I’m thankful for doctors that actually take time with their patients and listen to them.

- Verified patient on 4/14

Received a DOT physical! Staff and experience were great.....only concern was it’s the Covid pandemic! I should have not been made to wait 1 1/2 hours for a physical! I would assume if there was a pandemic your goal would be to get the healthy out in a timely fashion and not wait and exposure to the virus!

I had to get my DOT Physical. When I walked in I was immediately greeted by the friendly lady up front that helped me complete my paperwork. My wait was minimal.

Thank You, Tim @ Blossman Gas!

DOT Exams in Charlotte, NC

If you work in the transportation industry, you're probably familiar with the concept of a Department of Transportation (DOT) physical. Professional drivers must undergo this type of medical check in order to maintain their license. Finding a DOT physical provider, on the other hand, might be difficult, especially if you're in a hurry. We've simplified the DOT exam search at Solv.

How Solv makes getting your DOT exam simple and convenient

It can be stressful when your DOT certification is about to expire. You can, however, arrange an appointment with a top-rated local DOT examination provider using Solv's simple DOT exam locator tool. This simple and convenient search tool can assist you in locating the specific evaluation you require to maintain your professional standing.

Partnering with Solv for DOT exam services

A DOT physical exam is a thorough examination of your current health to ensure that you are fit to drive a commercial vehicle safely (CMV). Professional DOT physicals can help you and other drivers stay safe while on the road. To operate a commercial motor vehicle safely, everyone with a commercial driver's license (CDL) must meet certain health standards, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). A specially certified medical examiner must undertake this DOT physical, often known as a CDL physical or CDL exam.

Specific areas of your health will be assessed during a DOT physical to ensure that you can safely and successfully operate a motor vehicle. The DOT health evaluation comprises the following, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP):

  • A physical examination will be performed, which will include a test of your gripping ability, cognitive state, and mobility. A DOT examiner will confirm that you have a prosthetic device that meets federal regulations if you have an amputation.
  • A review of your medical history, including whether you have insulin-dependent diabetes, heart problems, breathing problems, high blood pressure, epilepsy, rheumatic conditions, arthritis, orthopedic conditions that can impair your ability to drive, or psychiatric conditions.
  • With or without corrective lenses, a vision test to ensure that you are inside a specific, predetermined range for visual acuity, color perception, and peripheral vision.
  • A hearing test, with or without a hearing equipment, to ensure that you can hear particular decibel levels within a certain range.
  • A urine test to see how well your kidneys are working. Your urine may also be tested for drugs, depending on your exam and medical history.
  • A medical examination to determine whether or not you are abusing alcohol.

Unless a condition is found on the exam that requires recertification sooner, your DOT certification is normally valid for 24 months after you earn it. If you fail the exam due to a medical condition, you may be allowed to ask for an exemption, according to the FMCSA. A second opinion may also be available to you.

DOT Exam FAQs

  • Where can I get a DOT exam in Charlotte?

    In general, DOT exams will be available at Charlotte-area urgent care centers, retail clinics, primary care doctor offices, and some chiropractic offices. Just be cautious of who you schedule yours with as online DOT certified providers are able to perform a DOT exam. While walk-in appointments are typically available, booking a visit online will reduce your wait time and ensure you get a physical and get on the road as quickly and easily as possible

  • Can I make a same-day appointment for a DOT exam in Charlotte?

    Same-day and next-day appointments for physical exams can easily be booked directly through Solv. Simply search for Charlotte-area doctors, find a provider, and book an appointment for a DOT physical as soon as today.

  • How can I book a DOT physical in Charlotte?

    If you are looking for a DOT physical in Charlotte, Solv can help you book an appointment. Simply search for Charlotte-area providers, find a provider, and book the most convenient time for you. Be sure to include “DOT physical exam” as your reason for visit.

  • How do I find top-rated, certified DOT exam providers?

    Solv gathers reviews, ratings, and other data on Charlotte-area physicians centers to ensure the clinics provided meet our standards. Search for a DOT physical provider, see what previous patients think, and book a physical with a top-rated doctor today!

  • Who should get a DOT exam?

    Drivers operating commercial vehicles across state lines must get a DOT physical if their vehicle weighs more than five tons, is designed to carry 9-15 passengers for compensation, is designed to carry 16+ passengers, or if they are transporting hazardous materials. Drivers must receive a DOT physical every 24 months or as determined by a doctor. The rules for drivers who stay within one state will vary. Check to see if North Carolina requires a DOT physical for intrastate driving before booking an appointment.

  • What is a DOT physical?

    According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), a DOT physical is a medical examination that helps make sure you are medically safe to operate a certified motor vehicle. Because certified motor vehicles generally are larger and more difficult to operate than passenger cars, their professional drivers are held to higher standards to keep everyone on the road as safe as possible.

  • How long is a DOT physical good for?

    According to the FMCSA, DOT physicals are typically valid for 24 months. However, if a condition has been identified on your last exam that requires an earlier re-examination time, you may need to be reassessed sooner. For example, according to the AAFP, people who take blood pressure medication must be recertified annually to maintain their standing with the DOT.

  • What can disqualify you from a DOT physical?

    According to the FMCSA, the following conditions can disqualify you from a DOT physical: hearing loss, vision loss, epilepsy (seizure disorder), or insulin use. Some prescription medications may also be disqualifying, especially if they are sedating or habit-forming, according to the FMCSA.

  • What happens if you fail DOT physical?

    If you fail a DOT physical because of a certain medical condition, you can apply for a medical waiver or an exemption, according to the FMCSA. This may be granted if you can prove that you can still operate a motor vehicle safely, despite the condition. You are also allowed to get a second opinion, according to the eCFR (Code of Federal Regulations).

  • Does a DOT physical check for drugs?

    No, the typical DOT physical does not test for drugs. However, professional drivers are subject to random drug and alcohol testing, according to the FMCSA. Also, if your DOT physical is part of a pre-employment process, then your urine will likely be checked for drugs, according to the Code of Federal Regulations.
