ATTENTION CDL drivers…by now, you’ve heard about the National Registry law that goes into effect May 21, 2014. After that date, all interstate commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers must get their medical certificates from a certified medical examiner listed on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners.
Find a certified medical examiner in your area—or anywhere in the country—by following these three simple steps.
- Visit the National Registry Web site and search by Zip Code, State, or examiner name.
- Choose a certified medical examiner from the list and call to make an appointment.
- If your preferred health care professional isn’t on the list, simply refer him or her to the Certified Medical Examiners page to learn more about getting certified.
PLEASE NOTE: If you’ve already had an exam and have a current certificate that certificate will be valid until its regular expiration date.
Please spread the word and encourage your fellow CMV drivers to find a Certified Medical Examiner by May 21st. They can find more information in the Fact Sheet for Drivers or by going to the National Registry Web site
