New Medical Certification Requirements for Commercial Truck Drivers in the US

Starting January 30th 2014, commercial truck drivers that operate in the US are required to carry proof of medical certification from a medical examiner.  However, those drivers with Canadian licenses do not have to carry the separate documents.

Canadian licences are considered sufficient proof of medical fitness to drive in the US because the Canadian licensing process for commercial drivers requires passing medical exams.

Drivers that do not meet the medical fitness provisions of Canada’s National Safety Code, but have received a waiver by a province or territory, are not qualified to drive in the US. 

For more information on the US medical certification requirements, visit the US Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration website.[1]
