Effective May 21, 2014, interstate commercial vehicle (CMV) drivers can no longer get a valid medical certificate from just any healthcare provider. Instead, CMV driver examinations can only be completed by Certified Medical Examiners (MEs) listed on FMCSA’s 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.

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

Looking for a Certified Medical Examiner? Use the form below to search the National Registry for Certified MEs near you.

Before scheduling your next exam, make sure you can see your Medical Examiner’s name on the National Registry website. If you are unable to find your Medical Examiner, he or she is not certified and you should select another practitioner.
