    I paid 45 bucks for my last one. Look around for chiropractors that do them or small clinics. I just got one about 8 months ago.

    I don't think there is any set amount to what they can charge. I renewed my physical DOT card a couple of months ago and cost me $65.00 for 2 yr.

    We've been charging $65.00 for the past few years here in SLC, UT, for a DOT Physical.
    Contrary to what some people think, the DOT Physical exam does not include a drug test. If a company requests a drug test, this is a service performed additionally to the physical exam. And we charge $45.00 for a random drug test.

    $202 would be sticker shock. Good to do your homework first ... that is, if you don't leave your renewal till the eleventh hour.
