Maryland Law concerning the Medical Examiners’s Certificate ( DOT Medical Card ) :

Even if you are not required to have a CDL, you may still need a Medical Examiner’s Certificate (DOT card).  Maryland law requires you to carry a DOT card if your vehicle:

  • is used for commercial purposes; and
  • weighs more than 10,000 pounds.



Please note that the DC DMV vigorously enforces the validity of the Medical Examination Status for those that hold a DC Commercial Drivers’ License. When your DOT card expires and is not renewed, your Driver’s License will be suspended util you present a current Medical Card to the DMV.


A DOT physical exam is valid for up to 24 months. The medical examiner may also issue a medical examiner’s certificate for less than 24 months when it is desirable to monitor a condition, such as high blood pressure
