Commercial Drivers: Certification for Drivers with Serious Medical Conditions
DIANE Publishing, 2009 - 24 pages
Millions of drivers hold commercial driver licenses (CDL), allowing them to operate commercial vehicles. The Dept. of Transportation (DoT) established regulations requiring medical examiners to certify that these drivers are medically fit to operate their vehicles and provides oversight of their implementation. Little is known on the extent to which individuals with serious medical conditions hold CDLs. This report: (1) examines the extent to which individuals holding a current CDL have serious medical conditions; and (2) provides examples of commercial drivers with medical conditions that should disqualify them from receiving a CDL. Charts and tables.
