NRCME DOT Medical Examiner Recertification FAQs
The 10-year NRCME recertification process is almost identical to initial certification.
National Registry Certified Medical Examiners are eligible to recertify once they have reached the 9-year mark of their current certification. This way, they will have a full year to complete the process. We recommend starting the process early and give yourself adequate time so that if you happen to fail the test, you’ll have plenty of time to take the test again before your certification expires.
The answer is no. When an ME recertifies, their new certification period starts from the time of their current expiration period. Here’s an example: An ME’s initial certification date is January 25, 2014. They are eligible to begin taking the 10-year training and testing as early as January 26, 2023 (9 years later), but it MUST be completed by January 25, 2024. They take the training and pass the test on March 25, 2023 (they still have 10 months remaining on their current certification). When will they be required to take their next 10-year training and testing?
Response: They can start as early as January 26, 2033 but it must be completed no later than January 25, 2034.
Medical providers who are certified and listed in the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners may continue to perform DOT physicals until their certification has expired. If you fail the test but your initial NRCME certification has not expired, you will not be removed from the National Registry. Also, if you don’t pass, you no longer have to wait 30 days before retaking the test. You can retake the test the next day if you choose.
