Do I need a medical certification/card or operate a CMV in Kansas?

Yes, unless you meet one of the five exceptions to the medical certification requirements found in 49 CFR §391.2, or meet the intrastate exceptions found in KSA 66-1,129(c).

The five federal exceptions to the medical card requirement are:

  1. Custom harvesters
  2. Apiarian industries (beekeepers)
  3. Certain farm vehicle drivers (non-articulated farm vehicles)
  4. Covered farm vehicles
  5. Pipeline welders operating vehicles not over 15,000 lbs. GVWR/GCWR/GVW/GCW
