Indiana CDL Requirements
All Indiana CDL holders are required to be medically qualified to drive a CMV by the means of a valid DOT medical certificate.
- Non-Excepted Interstate
You must meet the Federal DOT medical certificate requirements.
- Non-Excepted Intrastate
You must meet the Indiana state medical certificate requirements and endorsements.
The self-certification process requires you to certify to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles the type of commercial motor vehicle you operate, or intend to operate, as well as acknowledge that you are required to meet the medical requirements for that CDL.
- You will need to create a “myBMV” account, if you do not already have one.
- You do not need to submit your medical certificate when you self certify. This information is already on file from when you where issued your CDL.
You may use the automated system to verify that your medical certificate is on file by calling 888-692-6841, option number one (1).
Medical Certificate Renewal
To keep your CDL valid, you are required to keep a valid medical card on file with Indiana BMV. Submit the completed Medical Examination Form (long form) and the Medical Examiner’s Certificate:

100 N Senate Ave
IGCN, Room N 481

Special Information Updates Pertaining To ALL STATES
MEDICAL EXAMINERS MUST CONTINUE TO ISSUE MEDICAL CERTIFICATES TO ALL DRIVERS
The FMCSA has requested that all medical examiners continue providing drivers with a paper copy of the Medical Examiner’s Certificate – Form MCSA-5876, 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.
Until that system is completed, which compliance date according FMCSA is June 23, 2025, medical examiners must continue to issue paper copies of the medical certificates to drivers who pass the medical exam.
ALL DRIVERS MUST CONTINUE TO CARRY A PAPER COPY OF THEIR MEDICAL CERTIFICATE
Commercial Drivers – You still need to carry a paper copy of your medical card, until FMCSA announces that this is no longer necessary.
