Currently all interstate commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers are required to have a valid medical certificate signed by a healthcare provider. The only change created by the implementation of the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners is that, within 2 years of the rule's effective date, all CMV drivers must be examined by a ME who is listed on the National Registry.

The National Registry provides CMV drivers and carriers with a convenient list of medical examiners in their area who have been certified as having the knowledge to determine if a driver can safely handle the medical demands of driving a CMV.

Certified medical examiners will begin to be listed on the National Registry within 4 months of the publication of the rule.

Additional information and updates for CMV drivers and carriers will be posted here as they become available.

4 months after the rule is published, drivers may search for certified medical examiners by entering search criteria in the fields below.
