Starting January 30, 2012, and no later than January 30, 2014, all CDL holders must provide information to their state driver licensing agencies (SDLAs) regarding the type of commercial motor vehicle operation they drive in or expect to drive in with their CDL. 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. CDL holders required to have a “certified” medical status who fail to provide and keep up-to-date their medical examiner’s certificate with their SDLA will become “not-certified” and they may lose their CDL.
American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) has generated a table of state-by-state requirements for drivers and information related to how a state is handling the medical certification requirements, along with who to contact for additional information. Visit the following site:
