CDL Drivers not Actively Working, Please Note:
If a driver holds a valid Idaho CDL, but is not actively working, the driver is not required to maintain a DOT Medical and may certify the driving category as "Excepted Intrastate". However, should a driver decide to operate a commercial vehicle again in one of the "non-excepted" categories, the driver must obtain a current DOT Medical and update their certification to "actively working" before operating a commercial vehicle in a non-excepted category.

Exemption Chart:
Under certain circumstances, drivers in the following categories may be exempt from the medical card requirement but NOT from commercial licensing requirements according to FMCSA regulations. This list is a general guide: Transportation by federal, state, and local governments; fire trucks, apiarian industries, intrastate (Idaho) vehicles used to transport farm products, equipment, and supplies; Ag products, livestock, feed, forest products, sand & gravel, wrecker/tow truck, airline shuttle, household goods movers, occasional transport of personal property, ambulance, hearse, taxicab operations.
