The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has granted medical examiners a 120-day grace period (through April 20, 2016) regarding the use of new medical certification forms for truck drivers. In the final rule, the agency retooled the driver health history portion of the medical history form to include a number of new questions. The medical history form will now have 32 health conditions and modifies the duration of the medical history from five years to lifetime (Land Line).
