 The DOT Doctor Speaks 
Monday, 01 December 2008

This news was just shared with me regarding medical certs for CDL holders.  I know CA and some states currently have this requirement but now anyone renewing their CDL will have to have a current medical card.  Bad news for those of us how retain our CDL for training and other purposes but not for active usage.

New medical certification requirements for CDL holders in January

New medical certification requirements for CDL holders in January

This rule is effective Jan. 30, 2009. State compliance is required by Jan. 30, 2012. All CDL holders must comply with the requirement to submit to the SDLA their self-certification on whether they are subject to the physical qualification rules by Jan. 30, 2014.

Beginning Jan. 30, 2009, new regulations take effect regarding medical certificates and Commercial Driver’s Licenses.

In a Final Rule published Dec. 1, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration amended the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) to require interstate CDL holders subject to the physical qualification requirements of the FMCSRs to provide a current original or copy of their medical examiner's certificates to their State Driver Licensing Agency (SDLA).

The Agency also requires the SDLA to record on the Commercial Driver License Information System (CDLIS) driver record the self-certification the driver made regarding the applicability of the federal driver qualification rules and, for drivers subject to those requirements, the medical certification status information specified in the Final Rule.

This rule is effective Jan. 30, 2009. State compliance is required by Jan. 30, 2012. All CDL holders must comply with the requirement to submit to the SDLA their self-certification on whether they are subject to the physical qualification rules by Jan. 30, 2014.
