California Ambulance Driver License Exam Preparation

For those of you that got your CA ambulance driver license recently, what did you use to study for the exam? I don’t have the official handbook yet because i have to go in person to the DMV to get one, I think. Should I just study that?

DMV Closure and getting my Ambulance Driver's License

Does anyone in California know if there is a way to get the CA Ambulance DL now that the DMV is closed? I made phone calls to the DMV and my County EMS Agency but neither had any information. I had an appointment to test this month but it was canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and it would be a bummer if I have to wait several months before being able to test again. Ideally, I'd like to apply to companies when my skills are fresh, but I'll make do whatever the situation is. Thanks!

CDL in California for an Ambulance Driver's License

I recently got my EMT-B and I am looking getting my ambulance driving certificate. People in my class talked about possibly needing a commercial driver's license as well, but I have not been able to find anything on California DMV's website about needing a CDL to get the ambulance driver's certificate. Looking for advice in the ambulance license process. Thanks

Ability to drive an ambulance with a drivers license from another state?

I recently joined a PA Volunteer EMS program after getting my cert. I'm from CA but definitely want to take an EVOC class to be able to drive an ambulance in the near future. Will I have to get a PA drivers license for that?

Question Regarding California Ambulance Driver License and Live Scan

I just got my DOT physical exam as well as my Live Scan (at UPS) finished, and I'm wondering if I can go to the DMV now to get my ambulance driver license, or do I have to wait for my Live Scan results to process? In another words, can one take their driver license test immediately after getting their Live Scan and physical done, or do you have to wait for the Live Scan results to be processed and sent to the DMV?

Thanks

California Ambulance Driver License Information

Below is a summary of important information regarding the California Ambulance Driver Certificate. You may find more information by following the link above or by purchasing a California Ambulance Driver handbook from your local DMV office.

A California Ambulance Driver Certificate, also known as a California Ambulance Driver License or ADL, is issued by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and is required to drive any ambulance in the state of California. A California ADL is not an EMT or EMS certification; it is simply an endorsement to drive an ambulance.

Requirements

You must meet the following requirements and have the required documentation in hand when you go to your local DMV office to apply for the California Ambulance Driver Certificate.

  • Be at least 18 years of age.

  • Hold a valid California driver license that is not on departmental probation.

  • Pay an application fee of $25 for an original certificate or $12 for a renewal, duplicate, or name change.

  • Pass an Ambulance Driver written examination.

  • Submit a completed request for Live Scan Service form (DMV 8016 [BCII 8016]). Click here to search for live scan locations. (Not required on renewal applications.)

  • Submit a Medical Examination Report – MSCA-5875 with a revision date of 1/2016 or later for medical examinations completed on or after April 21, 2016. Ensure the report is filled out completely, with all required information, stamps, and signatures.

Important Notes

  • Certain companies or departments may or may not require the California Ambulance Driver Certificate prior to hiring. Please check with the job requirements for the job you are trying to apply for.

  • The Ambulance Driver Certificate expires at the same time as your California Driver License and must be renewed in person at your local DMV office.

  • Ambulance Driver exam questions and answers can generally be found online. However, not all ambulance driver exams are the same and questions may be changed regularly. If you wish to search for exam que

Step by Step to getting Ambulance Driver’s License??

Hi all! I hope this question hasn’t been posted already, since I wouldn’t want it to be a repeat but ANYWAYS

I’ve finally started looking into getting my ambulance driver’s license and getting ready to apply for my state EMT card. I’m pretty confused on exactly how to obtain the driver’s license. Could someone break down the steps to getting it? I know you have to take the test but applying for it is the part I’m unclear about. How do I go about obtaining the medical examiner’s card? Which forms will I need to fill out for that? How do I get the live scan? Do I apply for it and then take the license exam or do I bring in a receipt already showing I got fingerprinted?? The CA DMV website wasn’t much help and I figured someone on here would be nice enough to walk me through it.

Denied CA ambulance Drivers license

Long story short I recieved my EMT-B cert and was denied my CA ambulance license because of a medical condition I had as a child. I really wanted to work for a IFT company but now I dont really know what to do. Most of all the ER Tech jobs around me require EMT experience along with a few other certifications. Not really sure what I can do now for a job. Should I just pick a new career path and go back to school? any advice?

Ambulance Drivers License (potential) denial due to Isolated Seizure Incident 3 years ago

Hello EMS'ers, first time posting - long time Reddit and /r/EMS troll. I am looking for some advice, insight, help, input, etc. I'm 25, I just recently passed the NReg for EMT B (for the 2nd time, let my certs expire while in school getting my BA) and am going through the process of applying for my California Ambulance Drivers License. On the Medical Examiner Report I read under the physical qualifications bit that if you're on any Anti-Epileptic Medication you're disqualified from obtaining a license. Before a bunch of seasoned EMS'ers jump down my throat and say why would you ever get behind the wheel and potentially put your partner and Pt in jeopardy - like I've read on many, many other forums regarding this hotly debated subject - please hear me out.

I had a seizure three years ago when I was 22. It was deemed Idiopathic and I was put on Keppra (levetiracetam) as a precautionary measure; two 500mg tablets a day (a very low dosage). My commercial drivers license was suspended but after a hearing at my local DMV with a hearing officer it was reinstated, only about 3 months without a license. I pleaded my case and the gal basically said, sounds like you're fine to me I don't see why you can't drive; just short of, shit happens you're all good. Since then I've been symptom free and don't suffer any side effects from the meds or the incident. In these past three years I've been mostly compliant, with a few hiccups here and there, the longest probably being one weekend I just completely forgot to take it - point is, nothing happened and all signs point to this being an isolated incident occurring in my early twenties. I have a BA in Psychology and spent one year focusing primarily on Epilepsy, digesting as many peer reviewed articles on the matter as I could; suffice to say, I know the disorder pretty well - not saying I'm an expert, but I'm well versed. My clinical diagnosis on my Medical Record is: Simple Partial Seizure - Localization Related. In essence meaning: we don't know why you had a seizure, we ran tests on your brain and flashed super bright lights in your eyes (photosensitivity tests) to induce another seizure and look for an abnormality in your brain waves, but we couldn't get you to seize for us and can't find any conclusive evidence to say definitively: you're an epileptic and will be for life. For the record: it takes TWO or more seizures to be clinically diagnosed as Epileptic. When I asked, will I be on this medication for life, my phys

Ambulance driver's license CA question?

So I became an EMT-B recently, and I'm applying for my ambulance license right now. This might seem like a dumb question, but I just want to double check. On the Medical DL-51 I just need my pcp to do the physical, correct? Also, would I be able to have my optometrist do the vision section? I'm nearsighted.

CA Ambulance drivers license. Missing white form?

Hi all, I went to the DMV today hoping to take the CA ambulance driver license test, but I ended up wasting my time because I was not allowed to take the test because I was missing the medical examiners certificate (NOT DL-51, I had that completed). According to the DMV lady she said the medical certificate is a white form that my doctor was supposed to give me, and that as an EMT I'm supposed to carry that in my wallet at all times. The DMV wasn't much help, they just referred to it as "the white form" and they didn't even give me the name of the form or a copy of one that I could take to my doctor. The DMV insisted that my doctor has to be the person who gives me that card, but he claims to have no knowledge of the DMV requiring that form.

Again, to reiterate I'm NOT referring to DL-51, I already have that completed.

Does anyone know where I can find a copy of this form or what it's called?

CA Ambulance Driver's License + time to get a job post-graduation

Hey Reddit EMS,

I recently graduated from EMT-B school here in CA, looking to take my NREMT and Ambulance Driver's test. I've got the Ambulance Driver's test booklet from the DMV and have been studying it. Does anyone know what kind of information they'll be focusing on for the test? Practice tests available? (I've searched on google and I've found a set of flashcards and everyone talks about practicing w/ the AMR evoc test, but it's been taken offline).

How long does it take for the NREMT and ambulance driver's license to be processed into the system? Also, how long after getting my ambulance driver's license and NREMT cert. does it usually take to get employed out in Northern California?

Thanks guys.
