Commercial Driver's Fitness Requirements
RoadSafetyBC follows the National Safety Code’s (NSC) schedule of medical monitoring for commercial drivers.
Class 1 to 4 drivers and those with an industrial licence endorsement (e.g. 18, 19, 20) are required to have a Driver’s Medical Examination Report completed at the time of application and in compliance with the NSC schedule thereafter. The Driver’s Medical Examination Report is mailed to the driver when it is time to complete the examination. Under the Motor Vehicle Act, it is the driver’s responsibility to ensure that his or her address is current.
Further information concerning the DMER requirement and instructions are provided on the back of the Driver’s Medical Examination Report form.
