Florida CDL RequirementsFlorida CDL Requirements

Florida law requires all CDL drivers to have a valid DOT medical card, unless the type of commerce you drive qualifies as ‘Excepted’.

· Non-Excepted Interstate (Category A)
You must meet the Federal DOT medical certificate requirements.

· Non-Excepted Intrastate (Category C)
You must meet the state of Florida medical certification requirements.

CDL holders can no longer claim exemption from physical examination requirements because they are not currently operating in non-excepted interstate or intrastate commerce.

If not specifically included in ‘Excepted’ categories, you must maintain your physical examination or downgrade to a non-commercial license. If you self-certify in a category exempt from medical certification requirements (Category B or D) and later change to a non-exempt type of operation (Category A or C), you must recertify in the appropriate category and provide proof of DMV physicals to avoid potential enforcement actions.

If you downgrade to a non-commercial license and later need to upgrade back to a commercial license, you may do so without DOT certification exam and additional testing.

CDL Self-Certification

Florida’s CDL Self-Certification System allows Commercial Driver License holders to meet the new federal requirements for self-certification without needing to go to a driver license office or needing a DOT certification exam.

Online:
Go to FLORIDA Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Website
You may use the online process only if you have a valid Florida Commercial Driver License.

In Person:
At any Florida Driver License Issuance Office, you can request to have a DMV physical certification.

Medical Certificate Update

Drivers certifying in non-excepted interstate or intrastate commerce (Category A or C) must ensure their medical documentation is on file with the state issuing agency and that it remains current.  Failure to maintain current physical examination documentation on file may result in CDL disqualification.

Online:
Go to FLORIDA Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Website
You may use the online process only if you have a valid Florida Commercial Driver License.

Special Information Updates – January 2015 – Pertaining to All States

MEDICAL EXAMINERS MUST CONTINUE TO ISSUE MEDICAL CERTIFICATES TO ALL DRIVERS

The FMCSA has requested that all DOT medical doctors continue providing drivers with a paper copy of the medical certificate so that Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holders can provide a copy to the State licensing agency, and the non-CDL drivers can provide the documentation to their employers and Federal and State enforcement officials.

The Agency is currently completing efforts to put into place an electronic system to enable medical examiners to transmit the medical certificate information from the National Registry system to the State licensing agencies. However, until that system is completed, medical examiners must continue to issue paper copies of the medical certificates to drivers who pass the medical exam.

ALL DRIVERS MUST CONTINUE TO CARRY A PAPER COPY OF THEIR MEDICAL CERTIFICATE

Commercial Drivers – You still need to carry a paper copy of your medical card, until FMCSA announces that this is no longer necessary.
