TN Department of Safety Changes Submission Process for DOT Physicals

Effective May 16, 2022, the process for drivers and/or districts to submit their DOT Physicals for CDL drivers will be changing. Primary changes to the DOT Physical submission process include:

  • DOT Physicals must now be uploaded directly into the Tennessee Department of Safety’s DOT Physical Portal. Email and fax submissions will no longer be accepted after May 15, 2022. A link to the portal can be found HERE.

  • DOT Physicals must now be uploaded in the DOT Physical Portal 15 calendar days (about 2 weeks) prior to the driver’s expiration date. 

  • The DOT Physical email address, DI.CDL.Medcert@tn.gov, will become inactive beginning May 16, 2022.

Please take notice of these changes to help avoid your driver’s licenses being downgraded or canceled.

Questions regarding this updated process can be directed to the Tennessee Department of Safety’s CDL Division at 615-687-2312.
