Hearing Standard Request for Public Comments

The National Association of the Deaf has petitioned the FMCSA to amend the hearing requirements related to hearing, speaking, and the prohibition on use of interpreters during CDL skills testing. The FMCSA is requesting public comment related to this petition.

If hearing rules are rescinded, the need for a hearing exemption for drivers not meeting hearing requirements would be eliminated. Current requirements for drivers applying for hearing exemptions (or any other exemption) are that the driver would maintain a level of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level achieved without the exemption.

There are currently 34 individuals who have been granted hearing exemptions by the FMCSA, and all 34 of those exemptions were recently renewed.

For more information please visit the FMCSA Federal Register.

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.
