Starting May 21, 2014 you can only get medically certified by a federally certified medical examiner – called a CME or Certified Medical Examiner.
If you want to start driving again, you will first have to get a new medical card, and then visit your DMV, to self-certify in the category that is appropriate for the type of driving you will be doing.
A DOT medical card is valid nationwide and can be used by any company so you don’t have to get a new one. There are companies that have a policy in place that states they want you to have the physical exam done by their own examiner.
