*All CDL holders must comply with federal motor carrier safety regulations and provide information about the type of commercial vehicle operation they drive in, or expect to drive in, with their CDL. Depending on the type of operation, some drivers will also be required to submit a current medical examiner’s certificate to obtain a “certified” medical status as part of their driving record, as required by state and federal law (see Section 302.768, RSMo, and 49 CFR Section 383.71).

More information on the driver’s part of this requirement can be found at Under these laws, the Department will collect CDL medical card information through the license offices.
