    My medical card expires on the 19th. It is now the 3rd. Do I have to take it today or is it ok to take it tomorrow on the 4th?

    It should be fine up until the last day. My last one I took 2 days before it expired and all was fine.

    Really it depends on the state. Some states you have to mail it in and wait until the dmv attaches it to your CDL. In some states you can go on-line and type in the information yourself.
    In the first case you need a couple weeks, in the second you can renew the day of.

    Get your valid reup on your physical and get going. Otherwise sign a sworn tier two until you can.

    I live in Georgia. I got a letter about 2 months ago saying I had to get the updated medical form in within 15 days of expiration. But when I log in to DDS, it still has the option to upload or fax the medical form.

    In Colorado I found it best to walk into the DMV and hand the papers to the clerk and watch them enter all the information so I do not get the it was lost in the mail again, online, to many scammers so I avoid any real information going out into netherland
     
    snowwy, Lepton1, Tug Toy and 1 other person Thank this.
  8. some of these companies and places will fax it for you to your home state..just have to get with them and say hey I just got my physical done I need you to fax my certification whether you're Interstate or intrastate.
    I know when I get a physical renewed with my company they just take a copy of it and they just said everything up and fax it right over to the state then they pull up an NVR a couple of days before its time so there's no problems and make sure that it's all good and it shows myself recertified and the declaration chosen

    That's what mine did too.
    Then to double check things I went on the state's website after about a week to make sure it's updated.
