Don’t forget that beginning May 21, new rules go into effect for physicians who provide physical exams for interstate truck and bus drivers.
The rules, established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), stipulate medical examiners must meet certain requirements of a national registry.
That means you must:
- Maintain a valid state license to conduct medical examinations
- Complete required training on FMCSA’s physical qualification standards
- Pass the FMCSA Medical Examiner Certification Test to demonstrate knowledge of FMCSA’s physical qualification standards
- Complete refresher training every five years and recertification testing every 10 years.
