Registration for medical examiners who wish to become certified, and listed on
the National Registry, will be available 4 months (August 20, 2012) after the publication of the
rule on this website.
Medical Examiners who perform DOT driver medical exams are expected to understand fully the medical standards of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs)
and related guidance. The National Registry requires medical examiners to participate in required training, pass a certification test, and register on the National
Registry system to become a certified medical examiner. Certified medical examiners agree to keep their National Registry accounts up to date (licenses, training records,
etc.) and to transmit at least monthly results of all CMV driver exams performed to FMCSA via the National Registry system.
To support them in managing their National Registry account, certified medical examiners may authorize administrative assistants to access the National Registry system
and perform certain activities on their behalf.
To receive updates and information about FMCSA medical programs and the National Registry system,
sign up for the National Registry listserv.
