About the Exam
A DOT Physical exam is valid for up to 24 months. The medical examiner may also issue a medical examiner's certificate for less than 24 months when it is desirable to monitor a condition, such as high blood pressure.
If the medical examiner finds that the person he/she examined is physically qualified to drive a commercial motor vehicle (CMV), the medical examiner will furnish one copy of the results to the person who was examined and complete a Medical Examiner's Certificate.
Dr. Rapoff completed his certification as a Medical Examiner in March of 2016. When the exam is completed with passing scores, he will issue a DOT Medical Examiner's Certificate. You can find Dr. Rapoff on the national registry at https://nationalregistry.fmcsa.dot.gov/NRPublicUI/Drivers.seam.
The charge for a complete exam with Certificate (if approved by Dr. Rapoff) is $120.00. Payment is required before exam is initiated. Cash or credit cards are accepted. No walk-ins accepted. Exam is by appointment only.
