The federal agency that regulates commercial driver's licenses is the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (“FMCSA”). The FMCSA requires that persons seeking to exercise CDL privileges meet specific medical standards. These standards are set forth in the Code of Federal Regulations..

Only some medical providers are permitted to determine whether a CDL holder or applicant meets CDL medical standards. 49 CFR § 391.42 requires that the person administering the examination be on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners. In order to be listed on this National Registry, a health care provider is required to complete special training and pass a test on physical qualification standards defined by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (“FMCSA”).

From time to time, a driver may disagree with the results of an examination conducted by the medical provider selected by the motor carrier. Similarly, the motor carrier may disagree with the results of an examination conducted by the provider selected by the driver. Disagreements of that nature are resolved by procedures contained in 49 CFR § 391.47. Upon filing the dispute, the driver becomes and remains disqualified pending resolution.
