Changes in Reporting Requirements

Previously, Medical Examiners (MEs) were required to report the results of all CMV drivers’ physical qualification examinations on a monthly basis. However, MEs are now required to report the results of all CMV drivers’ physical examinations, including examinations in which drivers were found to not be qualified to FMCSA by midnight (local time) of the next calendar day following the examination.

MEs may also report results of examinations performed in accordance with the FMCSRs with any applicable State variances (valid for intrastate only operation)

Changes to reporting when no examinations have been completed

MEs are required to report when no examinations have been completed during the month on the last day of the month.

This is done through your National Registry account using the CMV Driver Medical Examinations menu option and selecting “Report No Exams for the Current Month.” 

For more information, providers can contact the DOT directly at FMCTECHSUP@dot.gov (recommended) or by telephone at (617) 494-3003.

10-Year Recertification Notice

Providers that have been certified and listed on the National Registry are required to be recertified no sooner than 9 years and no later than 10 years after the date of issuance of your Medical Examiner certification credential. Recertification requires that you again complete a qualified training program, such as ours, and again take and pass the NRCME certification examination. Once you again pass the NRCME certification examination the FMCSA will issue a new Medical Examiner certification credential - including a new National Registry number - which will again be valid for 10 years.
