The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is the agency overseeing standards for testing and licensing of commercial motor vehicle drivers including:
Interstate carriers of commerce supplies and hazardous materials
Interstate private motor carriers transporting passengers
In addition to rigorous training, individuals who wish to become interstate Commercial Motor Vehicle drivers must be seen by a "Certified Medical Examiner".
Effective May 21, 2014, all health care professionals who perform physical examinations and issue medical certificates for CMV drivers will be required to complete accredited certification training and pass an examination. Upon completion of the training course, the NAFP will provide you with the certificate that you will need to take to the testing center in order to take the NRCME test. Instruction given will include the core curriculum specifications established by the FMCSA.
