Physical qualifications and examinations

The Driver Is Certified
49 CFR 391 Qualifications of drivers and longer combination vehicle (LCV) driver instructors establishes the minimum qualifications for persons who drive commercial motor vehicles (CMV). There are seven subparts. As a medical examiner, you should be knowledgeable regarding the physical qualification requirements of the driver specified in Subpart E — Physical qualifications and examinations.
                    The doctor is responsible for ensuring that only the driver who meets the Federal physical qualification requirements is issued a Medical Examiner’s Certificate. When you issue a Medical Examiner’s Certificate, you are certifying that the driver is medically fit for duty and can perform the driver role that is described in the Medical Examination Form (PDF). You may certify the driver for a maximum of 2 years. You may also, at any time, certify the driver for less than 2 years when examination indicates more frequent monitoring is required to ensure medical fitness for duty.
The driver is responsible for maintaining medical certification and carrying the Medical Examiner’s Certificate while operating a CMV.
The Average Driver
The driver population exhibits characteristics similar to the general population, including an aging work force. Aging means a higher risk exists for chronic diseases, fixed deficits, gradual or sudden incapacitation, and the likelihood of comorbidity. All of these can interfere with the ability to drive safely, thus endangering the safety and health of the driver and the public.
