CDL Medical Certification and Self-Certification Process

All Commercial Driver License (CDL) holders licensed in Georgia, may submit their Medical Certifications online. However, CDL drivers wishing to certify their driving category or make a change to their CDL Self Certification Status, must submit the CDL Self Certification Form in person at a DDS Customer Service Center.

Please note that Self Certification Forms only need to be submitted once. They must be re-submitted (in person) ONLY if there is a change in the Self Certification Status.
