Drivers are coming in because they have forgotten to renew their Medical Examiner's Certificate or neglected to do so for various reasons. If you have received this letter: "Notice of Non-Compliance and License Downgrade", then contact the NYS DMV Medical Certification Unit at the address listed below after you have passed your DOT physical exam and received your Medical Examiner's Certificate (MEC). The completed certificate can be returned by mail, fax, and now e-mail! If you do not, you will be in violation of the New York State vehicle and Traffic Law section 510-aa and your license will be downgraded to a non-commercial driver's license on the effective date on your letter. (usually the DMV requires you to submit the MEC 20 days prior to the effective date of downgrade). Contact DOT physical NYC at 718-939-9020 to get your DOT physical examination now and avoid downgrading your CDL.
