How do I report my DOT medical certificate to Florida's Driver's License Office?
Florida requires that you submit your DOT medical certificate information to the State driver’s license office. This can be done by going to a SMV office or online at the link below within 15 days after receiving your certificate.
Florida’s CDL Self-Certification System allows Commercial Driver License (CDL) holders to meet the new federal requirements for self-certification without needing to go to a driver license office.
Florida CDL Requirements
Florida law requires all CDL drivers to have a valid DOT medical card, unless the type of
commerce you drive qualifies as ‘Excepted’.
- Non-Excepted Interstate (Category A)
You must meet the Federal DOT medical certificate requirements.
- Non-Excepted Intrastate (Category C)
You must meet state of Florida medical certification requirements.
Medical Certificate Update
Drivers certifying in non-excepted interstate or intrastate commerce (Category A or C) must ensure their medical documentation is on file with the state issuing agency and that it remains current. Failure to maintain current medical documentation on file may result in CDL disqualification.
