Department of Transportation (DOT) Physical Exam
About Our DOT Physicals
DOT physical exams / CDL medical exams performed by DOT Medical Examiners aim to detect mental, emotional and physical issues that may inhibit a driver’s ability to safely operate a vehicle. En español.
As of May 21, 2014, only US DOT certified medical examiners can give you a Certified Driver’s License (CDL) card. Statcare has five locations (in Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens, and Long Island), where over a dozen National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME-certified) carry out CDL medical exams 7 days a week.

What Our DOT Physicals Include
Our low price of just $95 includes a vision, hearing, urine test, and a $10 federal reporting charge; Statcare does not routinely test for drugs during the decision process. If an employer requires you to do a urine drug screen, please ask our staff about it (as there are a separate charge and special specimen collection procedure).
Since a CDL Medical Exam by a DOT Medical Examiner is NOT covered under any health plan, Statcare cannot use accept health insurance (call your healthcare provider if you have questions). Billing an insurance company for this visit is considered health insurance fraud. In addition, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations have made it more difficult to get a CDL Card or renew a CDL license; Don’t let your CDL expire!
