Commercial drivers license holders might finally be able to stop giving their medical cards to the state. The FMCSA is proposing June 23, 2025, for the new deadline. That date will also affect when motor carriers will be able to stop verifying that their CDL drivers are seeing a certified medical examiner.

No changes for now, but once the delay is finalized, motor carriers and drivers will need to continue following current practices for the foreseeable future. This means:

  • Motor carriers must continue to get a copy of each CMV driver’s medical card.
  • Motor carriers must verify that their DOT medical examiners are actively listed on the National Registry for all CMV drivers.
  • CDL/CLP drivers must submit their medical card to the state within about five days of each exam and then carry a copy for at least 15 days following the exam.
  • Motor carriers must obtain an updated driving record (MVR) for each CDL/CLP driver within 15 days of each medical exam.

Changes that were scheduled to arrive to the medical certification and licensing processes on June 22, 2021, are being delayed yet again. If the delay is finalized, recordkeeping practices will not need to change until June 2025.

VLC is here to help with all fleet and driver compliance and licensing matters.
