URGENT Notice for Drivers of Commercial Motor Vehicles:

On December 1, 2016, a Criminal Complaint in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Georgia, was issued against Anthony Lefteris, Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.), National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (“National Registry”) No. 8343724872, of Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. Lefteris was charged with Making False Statements, in violation of Title 18, U.S.C. § 1001; and Making a False Entry in U.S. Department of Transportation’s Records with the Intent to Impede and Influence the Proper Administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation, in violation of Title 18, U.S.C. § 1519.

The investigation initiated by the U.S. Department of Transportation determined that while listed as a Certified Medical Examiner on the National Registry, Dr. Lefteris conducted a number of medical certification examinations that far exceeded a reasonable number of examinations. A joint undercover investigation conducted by the Georgia Department of Public Safety Motor Carrier Compliance Division and Federal Motor Carrier Administration revealed that the purported medical examinations conducted by Dr. Lefteris at a truck stop in Atlanta, Georgia, exhibited a pattern whereby the examination was incomplete, required tests were not performed and information on the medical examination form was falsified.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) removed Dr. Lefteris from the National Registry on December 2, 2016.

USDOT/FMCSA intends to revoke all certificates issued by Dr. Lefteris to commercial motor vehicle operators within the past two years.

FMCSA offices nationwide are presently working with State Driver’s Licensing Agencies to obtain the contact information for all affected drivers. FMCSA is contacting these drivers and informing them that they have THIRTY DAYS to obtain a Medical Examiner’s Certificate from a Medical Examiner with valid certification on the National Registry. Letters to Georgia licensed CDL holders will be sent the week of January 2nd. Failure to obtain an updated medical examiners certificate will result in the driver being declared not medically qualified and subject to citations and/or being placed out of service during a roadside inspection.

The Georgia Department of Public Safety strongly encourages ANYdriver who currently holds a Georgia commercial driver’s license ANDhad a physical performed by Dr. Lefteris submit a current and valid medical examiners certificate to the Georgia Department of Driver Services immediately in order to prevent your CDL from being downgraded. In addition, any commercial vehicle driver who currently holds a regular non-commercial driver’s license and operates a commercial motor vehicle and has a medical examiners certificate issued by Dr. Lefteris, should obtain an updated and valid medical certificate from a registered medical examiner as soon as possible.

Drivers and carriers with further questions should contact USDOT/FMCSA via email at FMCSAMedical@dot.govor by calling 1-202-366-4001.

Under authority granted the Commissioner of Public Safety in O.C.G.A. §40-1-118, effective April 18, 2022, the Georgia Department of Public Safety Maximum Rate Tariff No. 3 is amended by including provisions for intrastate motor carriers of household goods to charge “travel time” and a “fuel surcharge.” These tariff concessions are designed to curtail some of the current economic challenges encountered by household good movers statewide. As a point of note, household goods movers are under no obligation to assess travel time and fuel surcharges to customers; the assessing of such fees is optional and not a matter of law.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the Department of Public Safety are requiring all companies who possess USDOT numbers to perform a Biennial Update, regardless of whether or not the carrier’s motor carrier information has changed. This law came into effect on November 1, 2013, but the date that a carrier must update their MCS 150 (Biennial Update) is determined by their USDOT Number as specified in Title 49, CFR, 390.19.The link below will provide the information and guidance so you can update your information online. Failure to complete a Biennial Update may result in deactivation of your USDOT number and civil penalties of up to $1,000 per day, not to exceed $10,000.

The Motor Carrier Compliance Division, Regulations Compliance Section, of the Georgia Department of Public Safety is responsible for the enforcement of the Rules, Regulations, and Laws governing household goods movers, passenger carriers (motor coaches & buses), luxury limousine carriers, and non-consensual towing operations.

The Department is firmly committed to fair economic practices and the safe operation of motor vehicles. Under current Georgia law, motor carriers engaging in the intrastate (within Georgia) transportation of household goods and passengers are required to possess Certificates or Permits issued by the Georgia Department of Public Safety. Additionally, limousine carriers and non-consensual tow operations are also required to possess Certificates or Permits issued by the DPS.

The Georgia Department of Public Safety (DPS) is primarily a law enforcement organization, and we encourage all motor carriers and drivers to comply with the Rules and Regulations of the Department, as well as Georgia law.
