Feedback from our medical examiners

“I find it very informative and actually fun”

Thank you for your help! I have been doing your course almost daily. I find it very informative and actually fun. The questions are challenging and the answers informative. The way you have laid it out keeps it from being boring or even feeling like you are studying. It feels more like playing a challenging game. Again thanks for all your help

“I love the interactive format”

I have not taken the 10-year RECERT FMCSA exam yet, but I have taken 2 other FMCSA prep courses and signed up for the PASS My Physical Recert Training last week. Just to take this course to be a better FMCSA examiner is worth it! I love the interactive format as it helps to recall and remember the most current information. The other training did not offer this reinforcement. I highly recommend this training as I already feel better prepared for the RECERT test, but more importantly to make better decisions for the drivers that we examine each day. Thank you, Dr.Thorpe!     
- Dr. Annette S., DC

“Thank you for the outstanding course”

Thank you for the outstanding course, review and testing. It really helped me learn how to retake tests and read through the questions carefully and solidify the knowledge base. Taking the tests is a learning experience due to the outstanding realistic scenarios and CDL driver presentations.

Frequently asked questions

Does This Course Work for NRCME 10 Year Recertification Exam?

Yes! This course is approved for BOTH initial certifications and the 10 Year recertification requirement.

Can I Use This Course for the NRCME Initial Certification Exam?

Yes! This course is approved for BOTH initial certifications and the 10 Year recertification requirement.

How Does the NRCME 10 Year Recertification Work?

  • The 10 year recertification training is essentially the same as first time certification.
  • Begin by completing the NRCME training with Pass My Physical (live or on-demand works!).
  • Upon completion, log into to your NRCME account and upload your training certificate.
  • If you are 1 year from your expiration date or less: Contact an approved testing organization (Prometric or PSI) and schedule your exam.
  • Take and pass the recertification exam before Dec 31st of the year that your current certification expires.

10 Year Recertification - When Can I Start My NRCME Training?

You may start your NRCME Training with Pass My Physical anytime within 3 years of your NRCME Certification Test (we recommend within 3 years of the last day of the year of your expiration). In other words, the certificate you get from our On-Demand or Live training is valid for 3 years. Considering you may register for your certification test up to 1 year prior to your expiration date, you could be doing your training almost 4 years prior to your expiration date!

For Example, if your expiration date is November 1, 2025, you cannot register for your NRCME Certification Test until November 1, 2024, but you can start and complete your training anytime! We recommend completing your training as early as possible to give yourself time to both pass the training and upload your certificate to your NRCME account.

10 Year Recertification - When Can I Take the NRCME Certification Test?

You are eligible once you reach 9 years after your initial certification date. You may complete the NRCME exam anytime starting 1 year from your current certification expiration date to the end of your certification expiration year.

For example, your certification expiration date is 4/30/2024. This means you may take your exam anytime between 4/30/2023 and 12/31/2024. Upon passing your NRCME recertification, your new expiration date becomes 4/30/2034 (no matter the date you complete recertification).

What Happens If I Fail My Recertification Exam?

All Medical Examiners currently certified and listed on the National Registry may continue to perform DOT Physicals until their initial certification expires (December 31 of the year you were certified). Therefore, you can fail the recertification exam and continue to perform exams until that date. Furthermore, unlike your initial certification testing where you must wait 30 days to retake the exam, medical examiners who are attempting to recertify no longer must wait the 30 days and can register to take the test again even on the next day!

Where Do I Check My Expiration Date?

This is available in your National Registry account, in your profile, and under the certification expiration line item.
