It's not a matter of state law - it's a matter of federal law.

A medical is required for anyone:

  • If they operate a motor vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), gross combination weight rating (GCWR), gross vehicle weight (GCW), or gross combination weight (GCW) of 4,536 kilograms/10,000 lbs or more in interstate commerce.
  • If they operate a motor vehicle designed or used to transport more than 15 passengers (including the driver) in interstate commerce.
  • If they operate a motor vehicle designed or used to transport between 9 and 15 passengers, for direct compensation, beyond 75 air miles from the driver's normal work-reporting location, in interstate commerce
  • If they transport hazardous materials, in a quantity requiring placards, in interstate commerce.

Additionally, to possess a CDL, you must possess a DOT medical card - ipso facto, if the vehicle requires a CDL, whether for interstate or intrastate commerce, the medical card is also required.

Any CMV with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating in excess of 10,000 lbs. and which is being operated across state lines requires a current and valid DOT medical card. Any vehicle under 26,000 GVW which is a bus designed to transport more than 15 persons (including the driver) requires a CDL, ergo it requires a medical card. Same with any vehicle carrying a quantity of hazardous materials which requires placards to be displayed.
