Commercial Driver's Licenses
Commercial drivers with diabetes have to follow certain rules in order to keep driving with diabetes. Learn more about these rules and the American Diabetes Association's role in making sure they are fair and do not discriminate against people with diabetes.
On September 19, 2018 the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) published a new rule on diabetes. This rule went into effect on November 19, 2018.
