Department of Transportation Exams

All drivers, interstate or intrastate, are required by the federal government to pass a medical examination conducted by a licensed healthcare professional prior to operating a commercial vehicle. This must be renewed every 2 years or more frequently depending on existing medical conditions.


After May 21, 2014, all CMV drivers who are required to be medically certified must be examined and certified by a medical examiner listed on the National Registry.

Dr. James Herzog is a Certified Medical Examiner who has completed the training and successfully passed the Medical Examiner Certification Test through the FMCSA.
