It essentially verifies that, as an operator of a commercial vehicle, you are “fit for duty.” The physical must be performed by a medical examiner listed in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) National Registry, and you will be provided with a medical examiner’s certificate or DOT Medical Card after you have successfully passed the exam. This card is then typically valid for 24 months.
