Utah CDL Requirements
All CDL holders have to certify driving type, and if required you must keep a valid medical card on file with Utah DMV. Your self-certification of driving type tells DMV which qualifications you must meet to hold a CDL.
You must meet the Federal DOT medical certificate requirements and have a Medical Examiner’s Certificate.
Non-Excepted Intrastate (Utah only, requires K Restriction)
You must meet the Utah medical requirements. You must have a Utah Intrastate Waiver card and a Medical Examiner’s Certificate.
Intrastate “K” Restriction
The Utah Medical Waiver Program considers medical conditions in specific categories. For more information see Functional Ability Evaluation Medical Report. The intrastate only (K) restriction is sufficient to indicate the driver has met the State of Utah medical guidelines for the commercial license. To inquire about more information about the Intrastate Waiver Program, call at 801-965-4437.

Medical Certification Update
You are responsible for knowing when your Medical Examiner’s Certificate will expire and for providing Utah Drivers License Division with a copy of your new Medical Examiner’s Certificate. Every time you update a DOT medical certificate you must also turn in the self-certification form.
If your DOT medical card expires, and you do not submit a renewed medical certificate your driver license will be downgraded.
You may submit a copy of your new Medical Examiner’s Certificate (MCSA-5876) together with a Commercial Driver License Medical Self Certification form (CDL 42) to Utah Drivers License Department by mail, fax, email, or in person as described above.

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.
