CDL Licensed Drivers
A CDL licensed driver, or a Commercial Motor Vehicle operator required to carry a Medical Card, has to now “Self Certify” their CDL driving intention with their state’s DMV. It went into effect August of 2012, but has a compliance date of January 30, 2014. Drivers should not miss this date. The consequence to the driver/business if they miss that date is that they may lose CDL privileges and may have to re-apply for their CDL if too much time passes.
Here are a couple of links that are very informative and may help answer any questions:
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration FAQs: http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/registration-licensing/cdl/faqs.aspx
State of NH DMV Requirements: http://www.nh.gov/safety/divisions/dmv/driver-licensing/commercial/index.htm
Essentially this will make it easier for drivers because after January 30th, 2014 they will no longer need to carry a physical Medical Card.
