What To Bring and Expect During Your DOT Exam

  • Drivers with vision or hearing problems must bring their eyeglasses, contacts, or hearing aids.
  • Drivers with heart related issues must, at minimum, bring a letter from their cardiologist that outlines their medical history and current medication, and indicates they are safe to work.
  • Drivers with sleep apnea must bring their most recent sleep report and associated documentation from their physician's office.


  • Drivers are required to have at least 20/40 acuity in each eye with or without correction. They are also required to have at least 70" peripheral in the horizontal meridian, measured in each eye.


  • Drivers must be able to perceive what is known as  "forced whisper". This must be done in at least one ear, at a distance of five feet or less and with or without hearing aid. This standard equates to an average hearing loss in the better ear of less than 40dB.

Blood Pressure / Pulse Rate

  • The medical examiner will check the driver's blood pressure and pulse to look for high blood pressure and irregular heartbeats.


  • A urinalysis is required.  The test looks for indications of underlying medical conditions such as diabetes.

A Full Physical Examination

  • The physical exam will cover a dozen of different categories.

Preparing for Your Physical

A DOT physical at Witkowski Chiropractic Clinic costs $95 and only takes about 40 minutes. We accept cash, all major credit cards, and company checks. To prepare for the exam, compile all of your medical records, put together a list of any medical conditions you've been diagnosed with, prepare a list of medications and the name of the prescribing doctor, and take note of any medical devices that you require.

On the day of the exam, you'll have to bring all of this with you. Here's a checklist of things you should bring (where applicable):

  • Photo identification
  • Medical records
  • List of medications, including strength and dosage, for both prescription and over-the-counter drugs
  • Eye glasses
  • Hearing aids
  • Copy of your most recent stress test (for heart conditions)
  • Copy of your latest sleep test result (for sleep apnea)
  • Contact information, including names, phone numbers, and fax numbers for all your doctors

Right Before Your Exam: Make sure you drink a glass of water and come in with a full bladder, as you will have to provide a urine sample.

Please call the office if you have any further questions or need further information!
