CDL & DOT Physicals

If you have any questions regarding CDL's and DOT Physicals, please reach out to the Transportation Department. 

Since the beginning of 2022, most DMV locations in the State of North Carolina now are allowing walk-ins but the DMV would prefer customers to make appointments still.  We suggest that you make your appointment within six months before they expire to keep your CDL active. You can click here and it will direct you to the NCDMV website to make your appointment. 

Having CDL's requires you to renew in person at the DMV Office.  

When it comes to your DOT Medical Card, please take your new DOT Medical Card to the DMV.  When you arrive at the DMV, please let them know you have a new DOT Medical Card and need for it to be scanned into the database.  Once you are done with the DMV, please bring the packet that Dr. King gives you to the bus garage or you can scan it at your school and email it to Alex.  If you want to bypass the DMV, you may bring your DOT Medical Card and CDL to the bus garage and we can submit it to the DMV on your behalf.
