Is the DOT medical card transferrable or do I have to get a new one when I start a new job? Can I get a copy of my DOT physical long form or will I have to take another physical? What if I recently developed a medical condition that I couldn’t drive. Can my Company have different medical requirements than the FMCSA requirements?Is there a difference between a DOT medical certificate and a DOT physical card? What do I do if my medical card gets lost or damaged? Can my new employer make me get a DOT physical even if my current medical certificate is still valid for another 18 months?In order to keep your CDL, some states will allow a CDL holder to certify in a category that does not require a medical certificate e.g.Intrastate Excepted, if they are not currently driving.Starting May 21, 2014 you can only get medically certified by a federally certified medical examiner – called a CME or Certified Medical Examiner.That examiner will have a National Registry Number, which must be included on the information on the medical certificate issued to a driver.Does a DOT medical card have to be obtained in the same state as the CDL is from?
Which drivers are required to have a DOT medical certificate?Medical professionals who participate in the CME program may be MD, DO, DC, APN, or PA.
