It is mandated by federal guidelines that anyone applying for a CDL must pass the Department of Transportation health exam. The purpose of this test is to check whether an applicant is physically capable of driving safely at the present time as well as in the foreseeable future. Successfully passing the exam means you have 24 month before you need to do it again, although in some instances this period might be shortened if serious health issues might arise in the future.
