The Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is reminding all Delaware Commercial Driver License holders that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has established new medical certification guidelines that apply to all commercial driver license (CDL) holders and applicants.
All current CDL holders and new applicants are required to self-certify their driving status as outlined by the FMSCA regulation (49 CFR § 383.71 (h)). drivers may be required to submit and maintain a current copy of their federal medical certificate with the Delaware DMV. Those that are required to provide a copy of their medical certificate must do so no later than Jan. 30. Drivers who have not completed this requirement by the end of the month will be downgraded to non-commercial, Class D privileges only.
Additionally, effective May 21, CDL holders will be required to obtain physical examinations and medical examiner certificates from a certified medical examiner listed on the National Registry.
