Need a Commercial Driver’s License?
As of May 21, 2014, all interstate CMV drivers must have their physical examination performed by a certified medical examiner listed on the National Registry.
The National Registry:
The National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (National Registry) is a Federal program that establishes requirements for healthcare professionals that perform physical qualification examinations for truck and bus drivers. To become a certified medical examiner (ME) and be listed on the National Registry, healthcare professionals must complete training and testing on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) physical qualifications standards and guidelines.
Ensures that medical examiners sufficiently understand how FMCSA medical regulations and related guidance apply to CMV drivers.
Was created to enhance CMV driver health and reduce highway crashes. Crash investigations indicate improper medical certification of CMV drivers with serious disqualifying medical conditions has directly contributed to fatal and injury crashes.
Medical examiners that perform physical examinations for interstate CMV drivers must complete training about FMCSA’s physical qualifications regulations and advisory criteria, and pass a certification test to be listed on the National Registry.
Certified medical examiners will be listed in an online registry.
As of May 21, 2014, only certified medical examiners are allowed to perform CMV driver physical examinations.
Driver certificates issued after May 21, 2014 will only be considered valid by FMCSA if issued by medical examiners listed on the National Registry.
Medical examiners must report results of driver exams every month via the National Registry system.
