Memorial Physician Services has certified providers to perform physical exams for drivers who apply for or renew their Commercial Drivers License (CDL) through the State of Illinois.
All drivers with a CDL license must pass a physical exam performed by a medical professional who is certified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and listed in the National Registry database.
Our providers certified to perform these exams received comprehensive training to evaluate a series of conditions, including cardiovascular disease, respiratory and muscular functions, vision and hearing to ensure safety for all those on the road.

You do not need to be a current patient of Memorial Physician Services to receive the CDL exam. The exam cost is $150 and is not covered by insurance. Any testing that may be needed will be an additional cost.
