CDL Self-Certification and Medical Examiner's Certificate Reporting
- All CDL holders must complete the self-certification form.
- Drivers that certify to non-excepted interstate or non-excepted intrastate driving must give the Bureau of Motor Vehicles a copy of their DOT Medical Examiner's Certificate, and must keep that certificate current. You may mail, fax, e-mail, or drop off the form to a motor vehicle branch office location.

E-mail: cdlcompliance.BMV@maine.gov (must be scanned as a word document or pdf)
Drivers that are required to submit a Medical Examiner's Certificate must submit a new certificate (a copy is acceptable) before the previous one expires to stay in compliance and avoid a downgrade of their medical certification status.
You can change your type of driving at any time by submitting a new self certification form and DOT Medical Certificate, if required.
Medical Examiner forms are available online at http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov

- For this 2 year period, the veteran has not had their license suspended, revoked, or cancelled
- The veteran does not hold a license in another jurisdiction (excludes a military license)
- The veteran has not had any convictions disqualifying them from the waiver, or has not exceeded 1 conviction for certain convictions (refer to the CDL Certification for Military Waiver of Skills Test form for list of convictions).
