Medical Review

Attention:  

Customers who received a letter from MVD indicating their medical certification will be expiring in 2018 may need to take action. It is likely the medical certification will expire by September 1, 2020. The letter is labeled MEDICAL ELIGIBILITY EXPIRATION.

Please activate or log in to your AZ MVD Now account at www.azmvdnow.gov, go to the “Driver License ID” menu item and select "Verify My CDL Medical Status."  This will have current, accurate information on your license status.

MVD Medical Review Program

The Medical Review Program helps ensure that drivers are medically, psychologically and physically capable of safely operating a motor vehicle.

The Medical Advisory Board is a professional unit composed of qualified personnel to advise on medical criteria and vision standards for licensing drivers. We work with the Medical Advisory Board and the Arizona Office for Americans with Disabilities to establish and update driver licensing standards set forth in Arizona Administrative Code.

Drivers are reviewed in response to self-reported conditions and reports received from law enforcement, medical professionals, MVD offices and concerned citizens. These reports are reviewed to determine if the driver requires a re-examination of driving skills or written testing, or medical or psychological evaluation.

It is the responsibility of the driver to report to MVD any medical condition that may affect the ability to operate a motor vehicle safely. This information must be reported as soon as the medical condition allows.

For medical review information for a commercial driver license, check the Commercial Services section.
