Statement from the DOT regarding issuing medical examiner's certificates to drivers with expired driver's licenses during COVID-19
Certified MEs listed on the National Registry are authorized to conduct examinations of, and issue MECs to, any driver that meets the physical qualification standards regardless of whether or not they have a current expired or unexpired driver’s license. The ME is only required to use the driver’s license to verify the identity of the person they are examining. An expired license is not a reason to refuse to conduct a physical qualification examination or to not issue the qualified driver an MEC.
