DOT physicals are not just a good idea; they are required by law. Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMV) are especially prone to this testing. The DOT Medical Exam and CMV Certification is easy and painless, especially at AFC in Massachusetts where the test is done fast and affordable. A Department of Transportation (DOT) physical examination is conducted by a licensed “medical examiner.” The term includes, but is not limited to, doctors of medicine (MD), doctors of osteopathy (DO), physician assistants (PA), advanced practice nurses (APN), and more. Our certifications not only meet the requirements set out for DOT Physical testing but exceed them with ease and efficiency as well as convenience.
Having a DOT Physical or Medical Examination has just recently become a requirement instead on an option. Just recently, State driver licensing agencies (SDLAs) began adding your medical certification status and the information on your medical examiner’s certificate to your Commercial driver’s license system (CDLIS) record. This means that anyone with a CDL MUST have a physical and examination done by a registered clinic.

Cities and towns like Framingham, Sherborn, Wellesley, Cochituate, Dover, Newtown, and Needham in the state of Massachusetts are just a short ride to AFC and for residents of these towns with CDLs or Commercial Driving Licenses, there is no easier way to fulfill your DOT Physical testing needs.
