Scheduling Your Recertification Exam

To schedule your NRCME 10-year recertification exam, you will need to upload your new training Certificate of Completion to the DOT first. To report completion of your 10-year periodic training to the National Registry, log into your DOT National Registry account, access your user profile from the left side navigation menu by selecting “My Profile,” then select “Manage User Information.” Under “Training Details,” scroll down to the subsection titled “10-year Periodic Training Organization Details” and select Edit. Complete the data entry and document upload requirement (you must upload your new training Certificate of Completion) and select Save.

After 24 hours, you will be eligible to schedule the $80 certification exam with either a PSI or Prometric testing company using the 10-digit National Registry certification number issued to you by the DOT. To locate testing centers near you, visit Google Maps and search for “PSI Testing” or “Prometric Testing”. Most testing centers are open six days a week.

Medical providers who do not pass their NRCME national exam no longer have to wait 30 days to reschedule. This applies to both initial certification and 10-year recertification. As soon as the FMCSA receives the failing notice from the testing company, they will update the provider's FMCSA account, a process that may take up to 7 days. Once the update is complete, the provider can promptly reschedule their next exam. For more information, please contact the FMCSA directly at FMCTECHSUP@dot.gov or by phone at (617) 494-3003.
