Special Information Updates Pertaining To ALL STATES

red1 check26The deadline for Commercial Driver Self-Certification is still January 30, 2014.

This is the deadline date for commercial drivers to have filed documents with their State Driver Licensing Agency (SDLA):

  1. Your self-certification affidavit declaring which commercial category you drive.
  2. Depending on the category you certify – A copy of your current medical card (and any applicable variance documents).

Drivers who have not completed this requirement by the deadline will be downgraded to non-commercial, Class D privileges only.

red1 check26Drivers, you still need to carry a paper copy of your medical card, until 2015.

The reason for SDLAs collecting this information is so that it will be stored in the Commercial Driver’s License Information System (CDLIS) online database. Once this process is complete, drivers will no longer have to carry a paper copy of their medical card.
SDLAs are behind in setting up this database, and on January 10, 2014, FMCSA pushed the State Agencies reporting deadline to January 30, 2015.

Important Notes For Commercial Drivers:
This does not change your self-certification deadline. You must still get your documents in by January 30, 2014.
You still need to carry a paper copy of your medical card, until 2015.

    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.

    • @David
      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.
