The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration recently published another extension of the medical examination and certification requirements due to the on-going effects of COVID-19.

The documents of drivers whose medical examinations originally expired on Mar. 1, 2020 through May 31, 2020 will remain valid through Oct. 31, 2020. This is beyond a previously announced extension date.

Drivers whose medical exam documents expire June 1, 2020 or later, remain valid through Dec. 31, 2020.

Drivers must have had a valid medical examination/certification that was issued for a period of 90 days or more to be eligible for the extensions.

Though the FMCSA also made it possible for states to extend CDL expiration dates, Missouri did not accept and adopt this portion of the waiver.

Find the text of the waiver on the FMCSA website.
