DOT Medical Examination
The DOT/Commercial Driver Medical Examination (CDME) is a medical fitness determination for truck drivers. The purpose is to ensure the driver is physically qualified and can safely drive commercial motor vehicles and perform non-driving tasks as required.
The CDME is part of the Occupational Health program. We recommend scheduling your exam 30 days before your current certification is due to expire.
