Self Certification is a form of reporting required for your CDL where you certify the type of activity you conduct with your CDL to your State Driver Licensing Agency (SLDA), which in Rhode Island is the Rhode Island Department of Motor Vehicles, otherwise known as the DMV. (Or the RMV in Massachusetts)
During self-certification, you will select one of four types of commerce that is to be conducted with your CDL. The activities conducted determine the type of medical requirements you are required to meet.
First off, while the form is submitted to the state of Rhode Island’s DMV, self-certification is a federal requirement for your CDL. With self-certification, the DMV is able to determine what requirements you need to meet in order to maintain your CDL.
RI DMV’s Self-Certification Form (link) offers four different options for the types of commerce, as does MA’s form as well.
