DOT physicals now available at Summit Express Clinics

Tennessee requires that applicants for a commercial driver’s license receive a Department of Transportation (DOT) physical. Summit Express Clinics will provide DOT physical exams by appointment starting March 1, 2018.
Individuals who must have a commercial driver’s license include:
- Drivers operating vehicles that carry 8 to 15 people
- Employees operating company vehicles 75 miles away from place of business
- Interstate truckers
- People transporting hazardous materials
- Drivers of vehicles weighing 10,000+ pounds
At a DOT physical, the provider will review your health history, perform a physical exam and complete medical exam certificate. The Summit Express Clinics exam meets DOT and FMCSA requirements. Insurance does not cover DOT physicals, and payment is due at the time of the visit.
Summit Express Clinics include three convenient Knoxville-area locations in Bearden, Farragut and Fountain City. For more information about locations and hours, click here. You also can contact your primary care office directly to see if DOT physicals are offered.
