Do you carry Med. Cert. in RV thats required by the Feds?

I just learned that if you drive a vehicle thats designed or used as a living quarters and has a gross weight of over 10,001lbs. you are required to carry a Medical Examiners Cert. This is a FEDERAL reg. for Second Division Vehicles and the living quarters definition is considered a Second Division Vehicle. The required forms do not come from the SEC. of STATE in Il. were I live. You need to get forms from designated organizationsmost of which have to dowith Truckers. Any thoughts or comments re: this info???

I don't recall this issue being raised before.

It sounds like a CDL type requirement that would not be applicable to RVs in personal use.

Can you provide a link to this requirement?

I carry the Med Card but it's only because I'm required to have it to drive my trucks.

This requirement is printed in the Illnois Sec. of State Non-CDL Rules of the road hand book under Federal Regulations for Second Division Vehicles. As defined, if a vechile is designed or used for living quarters and has a gross weight of 10,001lbs or more the operator is required to carry a Medical Examiners Cert. Doesn't that sound like MH RVers are included??

Here is an excerpt from the manual:


Federal Regulations for Second Division Vehicles

A second division vehicle is:
7 designed to carry more than 10 persons;
7 designed or used for living quarters;
7 designed for pulling or carrying freight or cargo;
7 a first division vehicle remodeled for use as a second division vehicle; or
7 a first division vehicle used and registered as a school bus.
Operators of a second division vehicle with a gross motor vehicle weight of 10,001 pounds or more are required to carry a Medical Examiner's Certificate with them at all times while operating the vehicle. In addition, drivers are required to maintain a file containing a written test verification, road test verification and other records.

The complete manual can be found here. Just click on Rules of the Road for Non-CDL Vehicles

I'll bet it's been ruled that this doesn't apply to RVs in personal use.

As a business all of my employees must have a medical card if they are driving a vehicle with a GVW of over 10,000#. A CDL is not required until you are over 26,000#.
I do not believe a medical card is required as a private coach.

Licensing Requirements
Operators of recreational vehicles, firefighting equipment, military vehicles and certain farm vehicles are not subject to the requirements of the Commercial Driver’s Licensing program. This section will help you determine whether or not you are required to obtain

a CDL or a Non-CDL classified license to operate your vehicle.

Doctors that due CDL medical exams either have the forms or know where to download the form from.

I've never heard of this medical provision being applied to RVs. Superstar or NASCAR driver tour buses where the driver is being compensated - yeah, I can see that.

I've got to ask, what is a Medical Examiners Certificate?

Never mind. I goggled it. Why in the heck don't they call it a physicians report? I thought I was qualifying to perform autopsies.
