FCMSA Announces Feb. 28, 2021 Deadline Extension for MedCards
FMCSA has also announced another extension of the CDL/CLP/Medical Certificates waiver that was set to expire on December 31. FMCSA has cited that the extension was needed due to the potential backlogs that exist at some State Driver’s License Agencies (SDLA) across the country. In addition, the Agency noted a resurgence of stay-at-home orders and other emergency measures that may cause further economic and logistical disruptions.
This waiver becomes effective on Jan. 1, 2021, and expires on Feb. 28, 2021. The full waiver notice can be found here. Carriers and drivers should review this waiver to ensure all terms, conditions and restrictions are met.
