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.
