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 the NRCME 10 Year Recertification?

Yes! This course is approved for BOTH first time certifications and the 10-year recertification requirement.

Can I Use This Course for the NRCME Initial Certification?

Yes! This course is approved for BOTH first time 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 your expiration date (except if your certification expires within 2023. Those expiring in 2023 will be granted extra time in order to complete retraining and testing. The added time will begin with an additional 12 months if your expiration date is in January of 2023, and be reduced by 1 month each successive month up to December of 2023 whereby you will receive only 1 additional month to recertify).  If you have an expiration date of 1/1/2024 or later, you must complete recertification by your expiration date OR YOU WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE NATIONAL REGISTRY.

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

    Although you may begin prior, you must complete your NRCME Training with Pass My Physical and testing within your 9th year but prior to your expiration date.

    For Example, if your expiration date is November 1, 2025, you must complete your training and register for your NRCME Certification Test after November 1, 2024.

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

    You may start your NRCME Training with Pass My Physical anytime but you must complete training to register for the testing in your 9th year.

    For Example, if your expiration date is November 1, 2025, you cannot register for your NRCME Certification Test until November 1, 2024.

    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 (unless your expiration date is in 2023. Those that expire in 2023 will be granted up to 12 months beginning in January of 2023, decreasing by 1 month each successive month throughout the year with December only being granted 1 additional month).

    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.
