Effective May 21, 2014, commercial vehicle (CMV) drivers operating in Massachusetts can no longer get a valid US DOT medical examiners certificate from just any healthcare provider. Instead, CMV driver examinations can only be completed by Certified Medical Examiners listed on Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s National Registry.
The National Registry provides CMV drivers and carriers with a 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.
To locate a certified examiner visit this federal web page: https://nationalregistry.fmcsa.dot.gov/NRPublicUI/home.seam
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has prepared a series of Frequently Asked Questions to assist drivers, carries and medical professionals: https://nationalregistry.fmcsa.dot.gov/NRPublicUI/documents/National_Registry_FAQ.pdf
