After the FMCSA confirms the test grading from the site and validates your credentials, they will issue you a National Registry Certificate and your contact information will then be listed on the National Registry Website.

Congratulations! You are now a Certified Medical Examiner. As a certified medical examiner, you will make important medical certification decisions that will reduce the risk for crashes, injuries and fatalities among interstate CMV drivers.

To maintain your listing on the National Registry, you must transmit to the FMCSA your CMV Driver Medical Examination Results, submit to periodic random reviews, take a refresher course every 5 years, and re-certify by passing the FMCSA exam every 10 years.
