You will need to take the originals of all these required documents:

  • Commercial Medical Examiner’s Certificate
  • And/or Federal Medical Waiver Card
  • Proof of employment by a government entity

Additional information clarifying each of these required documents is provided below.

Commercial Medical Examiner’s Certificate (MEC), form MCSA-5876. Other states’ Commercial Driver Medical Examination Certification Forms may be acceptable; however, these must be approved by the New Mexico CDL Unit.

If you are medically covered by a government entity, (city, county, state or federal), you can show your government- issued photo ID card, and bring in a  Vehicle Certification Form signed by your employer or your supervisor.

Plus documents proving identity and residency which can be found here.
