Driver Examination Forms Expiration Date Updated

Statement from the DOT/FMCSA concerning driver examination forms:

The date found on the top right corner of the Medical Examination Report Form, MCSA-5875, Medical Examiner's Certificate, Form MCSA-5876, Insulin-Treated Diabetes Mellitus Assessment Form, MCSA-5870, and Vision Evaluation Report, Form MCSA-5871, is the date of expiration for OMB approved information collection 2126-0006, that includes the Medical Examination Report Form, MCSA-5875, Medical Examiner's Certificate, Form MCSA-5876, Insulin-Treated Diabetes Mellitus Assessment Form, MCSA-5870, and Vision Evaluation Report, Form MCSA-5871. FMCSA has received approval from OMB for the inclusion of the Vision Evaluation Report, Form MCSA-5871, in information collection 2126-0006. Therefore, the expiration date of the entire collection to include the Medical Examination Report Form, MCSA-5875, Medical Examiner's Certificate, Form MCSA-5876, Insulin-Treated Diabetes Mellitus Assessment Form, MCSA-5870, and Vision Evaluation Report, Form MCSA-5871, has been updated to 03/31/2025, and all forms are posted on the FMCSA website. Please note that the only change to the forms is the change in the OMB expiration date from 12/31/2024 to 03/31/2025. Medical Examiners should start using the forms with the 03/31/2025 date as soon as possible. However, MEs that have purchased these forms in bulk, or require time to reprogram electronic system forms, may continue to use the old forms until stocks have been depleted or forms have been reprogrammed but should transition to use of the new forms as quickly as possible. Based on this guidance, SDLAs are encouraged to continue to accept these forms.

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.
