Convenient, Accessible DOT Physicals in Arlington
Federal law requires all commercial motor vehicle drivers to receive a special license before operating a commercial vehicle. As part of the licensing process, these professional drivers must undergo a Department of Transportation physical every two years. This law is designed to ensure drivers operating heavy, dangerous equipment are physically fit to drive for long periods of time. If you are due for your DOT physical, Urgent Care Center of Arlington is ready to assist. With our walk-in clinic and extended hours, you can stop in at a time that is convenient for you to get your physical, and an appointment is never needed.
Don’t wait for your primary care physician to have an opening. You need your DOT physical right away to keep your license and your job. Visit Urgent Care Center of Arlington today for prompt service.
We accept walk-ins at all times so you’ll never have to call before you receive a quick, complete DOT physical. You can also contact us online to learn more about this and other medical services we provide.
What to Expect at Your DOT Physical
The DOT physical is a fairly simple process. When you visit Urgent Care Center of Arlington for this appointment, please bring a list of current medications and a copy of your most recent medical records. Our physician will perform a physical that covers all of the conditions required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. This includes testing or screening for:
- Lung disease
- Hearing conditions
- Neurological conditions
- Vascular conditions
- Blood pressure issues
- Vision conditions
- Physical disability
If a problem is found, it does not automatically disqualify you from passing your DOT physical. However, a plan to manage the condition to make it safe for you to drive commercially is necessary, and your medical provider will help you work this out, so your medical needs do not prevent you from being a safe commercial driver. Once you pass your exam, it remains valid for 24 months.
