New search tool available.
The National Registry has restored some functionality through a new search tool. We are continuing work to restore full services.
The newly developed search tool allows stakeholders to verify that a Medical Examiner is certified and listed on the National Registry.
Drivers, Motor Carriers, and State Driver’s Licensing Agencies (SDLAs)
To use this search tool, the Medical Examiner’s National Registry number will be required. Drivers needing to verify if a specific provider is certified and listed on the National Registry prior to an examination can obtain this number by contacting their healthcare professional directly. Each certified Medical Examiner on the National Registry is provided a National Registry number when registering to become certified to conduct Department of Transportation physical qualification examinations. If the search for a National Registry number does not provide a result, it may be that the Medical Examiner is registered but has not yet completed the process to become certified by FMCSA and the driver should find a new provider. Employers and SDLAs can obtain the certified Medical Examiner’s National Registry number from the Medical Examiner’s Certificate, Form MCSA-5876 that is submitted by the driver.

Certified Medical Examiners and Testing Centers
Certified Medical Examiners
Certified Medical Examiners are able to continue conducting physical qualification examinations of CMV drivers and issuing paper Medical Examiner's Certificates, Form MCSA-5876 to qualified drivers. Medical Examiners should segregate all examinations completed during the outage and be prepared to upload them to the National Registry system, with no penalties, when it is back online. All certified MEs will be notified by FMCSA once the system is available.
Test centers should hold all the test results that need to be transmitted until the system is once again operational.
