 Possible Eligibility = The FMCSA has not received verification from your state licensing board that the DOT exam is within the scope of practice for your profession. You may proceed with registration, but the FMCSA must receive verification from your state licensing board before certifying you. We recommend that you delay your certification test until the state licensing board has confirmed that the DOT exam is within your scope of practice.

If you have any questions or need further information on this process, please contact the FMCSA Help Desk at (recommended) or call (617) 494-3003.
