FMCSA Gives Commercial Drivers Extension on Expiring CDLs, Medical Cards

Truck drivers with expiring licenses or medical cards have been given an extension because of difficulties renewing during the COVID-19 crisis

 The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on March 24 issued a limited waiver for commercial drivers whose commercial licenses/permits and/or medical cards have expired or are set to expire after March 1, 2020. The waiver, effective immediately and valid through June 30, comes in response to state Department of Motor Vehicles and medical clinic closures that have made it difficult for commercial drivers to renew expiring licenses and medical cards in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
