Physical qualifications are listed in CFR 49 §391.41.
If you do not meet the vision, hearing, seizure or diabetes physical qualification standards or have a loss or impairment of limbs (arms, hands, fingers, legs or feet) and want to operate an interstate commercial motor vehicle (CMV), you may be able to satisfy alternative physical qualifications or qualify for an exemption. Ask your examiner to complete your Medical Examiner's Certificate as described on our web page, Information for CDL, CLP and CMV Medical Examiners, and contact the Oregon State office of FMCSA at (503) 399-5775 for additional details. Information is also available on the FMCSA web site.
If you cannot meet the federal medical qualifications for CMV operation, you may qualify for an Oregon Waiver of Physical Disqualification. This waiver, available from DMV, would permit operation of a CMV used in Oregon intrastate commerce or in excepted interstate commerce only. Ask your examiner to complete your Medical Examiner's Certificate as described on our web page, Information for CDL, CLP and CMV Medical Examiners, and call (503) 945-0891 for specific details.
