Medical Certificate Extended But Self-Certification Deadline Remains Jan 30, 2014

The FMCSA announced an extension of the requirement for interstate commercial drivers to carry paper copies of their medical certifications with them while operating a commercial motor vehicle until January 30, 2015.
However, they did NOT extend the deadline to self-certify their status with their State Driver License Agency (SDLA).  That deadline remains January 30, 2014. The FMCSA website has the following FAQ’s to help you meet the new Federal medical certification requirements.
The process to self-certify varies from state to state. The American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators have State-By-State instructions for submitting medical certificates.
Truck Services of North America works to help you stay informed of situations that may affect you. For more information about any of our other services, contact us at, email or call 803.386.0320.
