CDL Physicals

Beginning May 21, 2014, all CDL physicals must be performed by a health provider who is registered in the federal certification program. Here is the link to find a health provider certified to give CDL physicals - https://nrcme.fmcsa.dot.gov/

Also, do not use NJ Transit's medical department for CDL physicals.  You are asking for trouble if you do not listen to this advice.  Make you appointment with a private doctor who is certified to give CDL physicals.
