FMCSA Gives Drivers More Time to Renew Medical Cards and Licenses

by Jun 21, 2020Idealease, Industry News, News, Safety, Truck, Truck Driver Safety

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) extended two Covid-19 enforcement notices relating to medical certifications and driver’s licenses. The enforcement notices, due to expire on June 30, 2020, have been extended through September 30, 2020.

Medical certification

Drivers who are subject to medical qualification requirements in Part 391 may continue to operate a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) with an expired medical certificate and any required medical variance, provided:

  • The medical certificate and medical variance were valid as of February 29, 2020;
  • The medical certificate was issued for at least 90 days; and
  • The driver has not been diagnosed with a disqualifying medical condition since his or her last medical exam.

If the terms of the waiver are met, the driver may continue to operate a CMV with the expired certification until September 30, 2020.

Driver’s licenses

The policy to extend expired driver’s licenses for the operation of CMVs applies to all licenses types (Commercial Learner’s Permit, Commercial Driver’s License (CDL), and non-CDL licenses).

A driver may continue to operate a CMV with an expired driver’s license provided it was valid on February 29, 2020, and it expired or was downgraded due a lapse in medical certification since March 1, 2020. However, the driver must otherwise be qualified to operate a CMV in accordance with §391.11.
