I've heard that a CDL will not be issued or renewed without proof of a medical card, even if you do not drive for hire or commercially. If that is true, I guess I will be illegal.

It really depends on what you drive and where you drive.
You can still get a CDL with out getting a medical card if you can fall into the excepted status.
The problem is you need to let your state know you are excepted by Jan/2014 are they will revoke your CDL because they are going to assume you are non-excepted.

Its true here in NY, I don't drive much anymore, but keep the CDL A up to date, last renewed in '09 and had to drive with it expired, did not realize this then and they would not renew it without presenting a current medical card, well at least it was 1 days worth of driving expired to help my friend when he was sick, til the doctor could see me for the d.o.t. physical, passed that easily. Just had another physical this winter, missed 1 letter on the eye exam, I blame it on poor lighting!

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Billy, that's because the NYS Legislature adopted the FMCSR regs outright. Fed requirements now became State requirements. Real dumb, and lazy, move on the NYS Legislatures part.

don't forget having to belong to a drug testing group. if you let your med card expire or quit the drug testing; your complete license is supposedly no good.

I have plans on going for mine in NJ within this year. I was born with a whole in my heart and had it repaired but one valve still has a minor leak. Does anyone know if that would out rule me? I sure hope not.
