To prevent accidents caused by medically unfit drivers, bus drivers are required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to pass a medical test every two years. The quality of this medical test has often been criticized. Therefore starting May 21st 2014, only specially trained medical examiners will be allowed to give the test. Additionally in the future the results will not be on paper anymore. They will be recorded in a unique database and integrated electronically to the driver’s license. (see our previous blog)
