Home Conferences Training and Testing Medical Examiners Drivers and Carriers Rules and Regs

 Drivers and Carriers

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.
