    MN orders stay in place order for Friday the 3/27/2020,due to the EL corona virus an there are orders not to have contact as of now. Have you ran in to this issue yet with renewing, an getting it attached to your DL at the DMV?
    I/we can not go in to offices to take care of this, I am waiting on word but no one has called me back as of this moment when this is posted.any suggestion would be nice

    Life as we knew it has been put on hold.

    Renewing anything is out of our hands and not possible.

    The un-intended consequences of the "stay at home" orders will come when they are dropped. Going to be a cluster when all the drivers with expired "Med Cards" try to get in at the same time to renew. They will be fighting all the other people who had to postpone their doctors appts. til the order was rescinded.
    Same goes for driver's licenses and vehicle registrations.

    I agree.

    Its going to be such a mess.

    We might even lose enough trucks parked as a country to not be able to keep up that delivery system for a while because of it.

    I had to renew my DOT Medical Card and When the President said everyone stay at home to stop the Spread of the Virus I Stayed home , Now I don't have a Medical Card and just got a Letter in the Mail that says Disqualification CDL Medical Certification , mostly i was scared to go to the Doctors Office because of the Virus , but nobody could tell me anything , more less i listened to what the President said to stay home , More less i even quit my Job because i wasn't going to run back in forth from NC to NYC and NJ and more less they acted like that's all they have , my life is more important to me , But i have been Driving Truck for almost 30 years now and never had any problems until now

    Medical cards have been extended by the FMCSA until June 30, so you can disregard that letter for now. As have expiring CDLs. And there are still companies hiring that don't go to the northeast.
