MONTGOMERY -- ALEA Advises the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has granted an extension for expired Alabama CDL /CLP licenses and Medical Certifications.
FMCSA has granted a waiver in response to the COVID-19 emergency for CDL holders, CLP holders and interstate drivers operating commercial motor vehicles.
This waiver, effective for the period beginning 12:01 a.m. March 20, 2020, through 11:59 p.m. June 30, 2020, applies to CDL or CLP holders whose commercial driver license and/or medical certification was valid on Feb. 29, 2020, and expired on or after March 1, 2020. (This excludes medical certifications issued for less than 90 days.) Drivers must carry a paper copy of their expired medical certificate to provide proof the expiration date was on or after March 1, 2020.
If a CDL/CLP holder receives or has received a “NOTIFICATION OF THE CANCELLATION OF YOUR COMMERCIAL DRIVER LICENSE and/or DRIVING PRIVILEGE” for failure to provide required CDL medical certification, which expires during the period above, please disregard. Because of the FMCSA CDL waiver, ALEA is granting an additional 120 days from the date of expiration to renew any CDL or CLP driver license and/or submit an updated medical certification.
