CDL Self-Certification Deadline Approaching

Don Snemis, Commissioner of the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV), issued a reminder to Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holders that the deadline to self-certify is Jan. 30.

Federal regulation requires CDL holders to certify to the BMV the type of commercial motor vehicles that they operate, or intend to operate, as well as an acknowledgement that medical requirements for that CDL are met.

Self-certification can be completed free of cost online at the BMV website or at a BMV branch when completing a transaction. Failure to self-certify will disqualify the CDL holder’s driving privileges as of Feb. 1.

Base driving privileges for personal use, however, will not be affected for failure to self-certify.
