Driver Safety Resources
We’ve identified resources designed to help CMV drivers stay healthy and safe. In this section, you’ll find resources from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), our partners, and trucking associations. This section is updated as new resources are identified.
Everyone knows that being healthy enough to drive safely is important. The FMCSA sets medical standards that most truck drivers in the United States are required to meet in order to drive as a professional. The driver medical certification screenings are not intended to serve as a replacement for a regular checkup from a doctor. The Driver Medical Certification section provides a basic guide for what these medical standards are and what they are not.
In addition to the Driver Medical Certification materials, FMCSA has many other resources available to help you maintain your health and safety while on the road. In this section, we’ve identified the most relevant FMCSA resources. Additional resources can be found on the FMCSA website.
