New Medical Certification Requirements for CDL Holders

Truck PhotoEffective January 30, 2012 commercial drivers will now be required to provide proof of DOT medical qualification when renewing your CDL operator’s  license.  Although driver physical qualification requirements are not changing, drivers operating in certain types of commerce will be required to submit a current medical examiner’s certificate to their SDLA to obtain a “certified” medical status as part of their driving record. For specific State by State requirements for drivers and information related to how a State is handling the Medical Certification requirements, and to determine who to contact for additional information, click on the following link: http://www.aamva.org/aamva/DocumentDisplay.aspx?id={687D99D3-FFB5-4B76-BD6F-F5EF54728BE0
