Driver medical exams
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has updated the form that medical examiners use to document physical exams for commercial motor vehicle drivers. A revised version of the Medical Examination Report Form (MCSA–5875) was published July 7, 2021, with an effective date of September 7, 2021. Changes included removal of the driver’s gender information and minor grammatical and technical corrections.
The FMCSA is expected to seek approval of the updated form from the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) before requiring its use. OMB’s approval of the prior version of the form expires on November 30, 2021.
