In order to operate a commercial vehicle in the United States, drivers are required to undergo and pass a comprehensive DOT physical that is conducted by a licensed and qualified medical examiner who is approved by the Department of Transportation. At Taylorville Urgent Care, we can provide this service to residents in Taylorville, IL, or any of the surrounding areas, who are seeking certification to be considered qualified to drive commercially. When you come to us for a DOT physical, you will meet with a qualified medical examiner who will review your medical history and ask you for a list of any medications that you take on a regular basis. As part of your DOT physical, the medical examiner will also:
- Conduct a vision test

- Examine your eyes, throat, mouth, and ears
- Listen to your heart and lungs
- Check your spine for any abnormalities
- Perform a neurological examination
- Press on your abdomen to check for anything considered unusual

Once the medical examiner complete all of the requirements of the DOT physical, he or she will discuss any concerns there may be with your health history and/or current medical condition. If it is determined that you meet the standards for operating a commercial vehicle, the medical examiner will issue a certificate that is valid for 24 months.
