Currently all interstate commercial motor vehicle
(CMV) drivers are required to have a valid medical certificate signed by a
healthcare provider. The only change
created by the implementation of the National Registry of Certified Medical
Examiners, is that within 2 years of the effective date of this rule, all CMV drivers must be examined by a ME
who is listed on the National Registry.
The National Registry provides CMV drivers and
carriers with a convenient list of medical examiners in their area who have been
certified as having the knowledge to determine if a driver can safely handle the
medical demands of driving a CMV.
Certified medical examiners will be listed on the National
Registry within 4 months of the publication of the rule.
Additional information and updates for CMV drivers
and carriers will be posted here as they become available.
