U.S. DOT launches the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME) program!

The U.S. Transportation announces a new safety rule that requires healthcare professionals who perform medical examinations for interstate truck and bus drivers to be trained, tested and certified on the specific physical qualifications that affect a driver’s ability to safely operate the vehicle. The final rule also creates a national online database of medical examiners who have completed the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) certification process.


The National Registry medical examiner registration portal is now live so medical examiner candidates may submit their registration online to become certified.
