RMV_LogoMassDOT Registry of Motor Vehicles Division is pleased to announce a new online transaction designed to allow Commercial Driver’s a self-service option for meeting the new Federal regulation which requires them to self-certify with the RMV.  This new transaction is designed to assist our commercial drivers in maintaining compliance with federal regulations before the deadline of January 30, 2014. The transaction may be accessed on the web:https://secure.rmv.state.ma.us/PreStageAS/PST_IntroAndTermsAndConditions.aspx?Transaction=CDLSelfCert

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations require that all Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holders inform the Registry of Motor Vehicles Division of the type of commerce in which they operate (interstate or intrastate), and whether or not they are required to hold a US DOT medical certificate. Also, drivers with a US DOT medical certificate will need to provide a copy to the Registry.  Failure to provide this information, known as self-certifying, prior to January 30, 2014 will result in the loss of the CDL.  

Drivers who have already self certified will not need to do so again until the expiration of their US DOT medical certificate. Additionally, those drivers required to provide a copy of their US DOT medical certificate will need to provide a new US DOT medical certificate upon each expiration of the US DOT medical certificate.  Drivers can check the status of their self certification on the Registry web site: https://secure.rmv.state.ma.us/LicInquiry/intro.aspx

Most CDL license holders will find they are able to complete this online transaction process in approximately five minutes with the following materials handy:

·         Your license information

·         Your US DOT medical certificate, if you are required to carry one. 

·         If you are required to carry a medical certificate, your US DOT medical certificate will need to be scanned on your computer as a PDF or JPG file to be uploaded to the Registry. 

Commercial drivers should complete the self-certification process now to make sure that there is no interruption in their right to operate commercial vehicles. Please visit the web link:  https://secure.rmv.state.ma.us/PreStageAS/PST_IntroAndTermsAndConditions.aspx?Transaction=CDLSelfCert
