Special Information Updates  – JANUARY 2015 – Pertaining To ALL STATES


The FMCSA has requested that all medical examiners continue providing drivers with a paper copy of the medical certificate so that Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holders can provide a copy to the State licensing agency, and the non-CDL drivers can provide the documentation to their employers and Federal and State enforcement officials.

The Agency is currently completing efforts to put into place an electronic system to enable medical examiners to transmit the medical certificate information from the National Registry system to the State licensing agencies. However, until that system is completed, medical examiners must continue to issue paper copies of the medical certificates to drivers who pass the medical exam.


Commercial Drivers – You still need to carry a paper copy of your medical card, until FMCSA announces that this is no longer necessary.

    Do I need a dot medical card to drive a cmv in ks without a cdl with a gvwr of less than 14000 lb? The cdl handbook said I don’t need a cdl to drive the vehicle, but it said nothing about if I need a dot medical card or not. No hazmat on vehicle.

      In many states you need to have a medical card to operate any vehicle that is being used for commerce. Especially if it exceeds 10,001 pounds.
      So check with your local DLD and see what they say.
