Prior to renewal of Medical Certificate
Just a few tips to make it a little less stressful.
A driver with diabetes MUST have a copy of the latest A1C percentage (within the last 90 days).
A driver with high blood pressure must bring a list of medications and doctors information.
A driver with any heart or lung issues must bring a list of medications, doctors information and a medical release to operate a CMV (commercial vehicle). The letter must say driver is cleared to drive a commercial vehicle!
A driver with a BMI > 33-35% with a neck > 17" (male) or with a neck >16" (female) MAY require further testing to rule out sleep apnea.
A driver currently using a CPAP for sleep apnea, must bring in percent compliance printout from machine or company.
AFTER RENEWAL: The driver is responsible for providing his or her licensing state with updated information of each new medical exam certificate, the little card not the long form!
Doctor will provide the same information to NRCME federal data base.
