Mississippi Offers CDL Medical Card Submissions On-The-Go

Mississippi Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holders now have a convenient way to upload their medical card and complete their certification thanks to the Department of Public Safety’s new application. The CDL Medical Card Submission Application allows CDL licensees to electronically submit their medical card online or on their mobile device. This efficient certification application eliminates the need for a paper application and travel required to present the card in person.

Driver Services Bureau Director, Major Chris Gillard, noted, “Many CDL drivers are on the road weeks at a time and find it difficult to present their medical card in person, annually. This mobile-optimized application accepts images from traditional PC uploads or mobile photo albums and cameras, allowing drivers to submit their cards at anytime, from anywhere.”

Users of the secure online service need only to provide their CDL information, including name and date of birth, to get started. The intuitive form electronically collects few quick questions to accompany the uploaded medical card and within minutes drivers are finished and back on the road.

“The Department of Public Safety recognized a need for an efficient and convenient process for CDL holders to submit their medical card and complete their annual certification,” said Kenneth Magee, DPS deputy administrator. “This mobile service is available 24/7 and is an example of how DPS is dedicated to bringing new services and online solutions to our commercial drivers.”
