Physical Qualifications for CDL Holders

A CDL driver must be physically qualified to operate a CMV.

Failure to maintain a valid federal medical certificate on file at the DMV will result in the CLP being denied or the CDL being downgraded to a non-commercial, Class D privilege only license.

Please review the Self Certification Category Guide to assist you in determining your self-certification status and whether or not you will need to provide a copy of your medical certificate. Once you have identified your category, complete and submit the Self Certification Affidavit. Please remember, it is mandatory for all CLP/CDL holders to complete the Self Certification Affidavit and return it to the division.

Additionally, if convicted of a serious traffic violation in a private passenger vehicle and your private passenger vehicle driving privileges are suspended as a result thereof, your CDL may also be disqualified accordingly.
