National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME)
Dr. Lawrence Paule is one of a few licensed Chiropractors that are certified by NRCME. The National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (National Registry) is a new Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) program. It requires all medical examiners (MEs) who wish to perform physical examinations for interstate commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers to be trained and certified in FMCSA physical qualification standards. Medical examiners who have completed the training and successfully passed the test are included in an online directory on the National Registry website.
Arizona DOT Physical Exam For CDL
It is mandated by federal guidelines that all commercial drivers pass the DOT physical exam. The goal of this exam is to check whether an applicant is fit enough to drive safely at the present time as well as in the foreseeable future. Passing the exam successfully usually means you only have to take the exam in 24 months time, although in some cases this period might be shortened in case that serious health issues might appear in the future.
