It is mandated by federal guidelines that all commercial drivers pass the DOT health exam. The goal of this test is to determine whether a potential driver is physically capable of driving safely at the present time as well as in the foreseeable future. Passing the exam successfully usually means you only have to take the exam in 24 months time, although in some instances this period might be shortened if serious health problems might appear in the future.
