Misinformation May Lead to CDL Holders’ Downgraded Licenses

Posted by:

Be wary!  Many drivers and motor carriers are incorrectly assuming the Medical Examiner will submit proof of medical certification to State Driver Licensing Agencies (SDLAs) on behalf Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holders. This is untrue. Medical Examiners have not been assigned this task. CDL holders that mistakenly believe this is taking place may find their CDLs downgraded (i.e., inactive for use in interstate commerce) if they fail to personally submit the medical examiner’s certificate.
