    I’m not Red, just a veteran driver helping to answer questions. The Commercial Driver License CDL requires a medical exam. Drivers typically call it their DOT medical or DOT Card. The gov’t body that oversees CDL operations is the FMCSA. And here is a link to the medical form you fill out before exercising your CDL privileges
