A3 Restriction

The description of the A3 restriction will change from "Municipal or School Operation Only" to "Med Cert Exempt." This encompasses all of the federal and state Excepted types of operation.

If you operate only in Excepted Interstate or Excepted Intrastate operations, you are not required to hold a USDOT Medical Examiner's Certificate. If you are Municipal or School operator, you will still be eligible for the A3 restriction because these are Excepted types of operation.

If you currently have an A3 restriction, you do not need to amend your license to change the description of the restriction. The "Municipal or School Operation Only" description is valid until you renew your license. When you renew, the restriction description will automatically be converted to "Med Cert Exempt."
