Uploading CDL Exam Results

Recently, a medical provider reached out with a question:

"How long does the Medical Examiner Administrative Assistant have to submit the results of a CDL examination to the DOT? Sometimes we're unable to access the system, especially on the weekends, so I didn't want this to impact the driver. We had a driver call us and tell us his license was suspended due to failure to report his certification with the state."

The usual standard is that results should be uploaded by midnight local time of the calendar day following the examination, but obviously if the system is not functioning then that is not possible. We recommend that they check the NRCME accessibility on a daily basis.

For more information regarding the uploading of CDL exam results, visit the FMCSA website: FMCSA

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.
