About the Registry

The goal of the National Registry is to promote and preserve the highest level of professional standards, training and care among medical examiners. Therefore, the National Registry requires that medical examiners performing CMV driver examinations be trained and certified.   In order to become a certified medical examiners (ME), a healthcare professional must register with the NRCME, complete a training course, and pass the exam.     The National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners lists MEs who have been trained, tested and certified to perform medical examinations for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers in interstate commerce. These MEs fully understand the medical standards in the FMCSA Regulations, related guidance and how they relate to the medical demands of operating a commercial motor vehicle.

Once you've passed our course and obtained an NRCME number, you can schedule to sit the exam.  Please note that the DOT will not let AOCOPM, as a training organization, administer the exam.  For information about Testing Centers and to find one near you:  NRCME testing centers.  Important exam instructions, including what to bring can be found here:  http://nrcme.psiexams.com/
