NRCME DOT Medical Examiner Recertification FAQs

How Does NRCME Recertification Work for DOT Medical Examiners?

The 10-year NRCME recertification process is almost identical to initial certification.

  • Complete either live or online recertification training

  • Log into your FMCSA National Registry account and upload your training certificate

  • Contact one of the two FMCSA-approved testing organizations (Prometric or PSI) to schedule the NRCME recertification test

  • Take and pass the recertification test prior to your National Registry certification expiration

When Can I Start the NRCME Recertification Process?

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.

Will I Lose the Time Left On My Current Certification If I Recertify Early?

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.

How Can I Check the Expiration Date of My NRCME Certification?
To check the Expiration Date of your NRCME certification, you must first login to your National Registry account, then click on “My Profile” in the left-hand column, followed by “Manage User Information”.
Near the top right of the next screen, you will find the expiration date of your NRCME certificate. If you have not completed the recertification process by that date, you will be removed from the National Registry.
How Long Does NRCME Recertification Training Take?
Our training for recertification in the National Registry involves 9 training modules and two 120 question practice tests with 40+ bonus questions. It should take approximately 7-8 hours to go through all the material. Also included are key insights into the NRCME test, the medical examiner handbook, the expert panel recommendations for cardiovascular diseases, and a powerpoint presentation on opioids and mental health conditions. All of the material is on-demand and can be reviewed as often as desired.
What Happens If I Fail the NRCME Recertification Test?

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.
