MASSDOT, 7D Van, School Bus Certificate
Effective May 21, 2014, DOT physical examinations may only be performed by a federally certified medical examiner. Three of our providers have taken the necessary training and have become certified. We are trying to keep the process as simple and easy for you as we can. DOT PHYSICALS PERFORMED ONLY AT NORTHAMPTON OFFICE.
When you Call to Schedule your DOT Physical
Please tell the receptionist, at that time, that you will need a DOT physical. Since not all of our providers are certified examiners, we want to make sure we schedule you for the proper date and time.
DOT Physical Cost
Upfront payment of $100. One additional follow up visit will be covered in the upfront payment of $100. Any additional visits after the follow up will require an upfront payment of $50.
Before Your Visit

When you Come for your Visit
