Excerpts from AME Guide
Guide for Aviation Medical Examiners
Application Process for Medical Certification
In addition to making a declaration of the completeness and truthfulness of the applicant's responses on the medical application, the applicant's declaration authorizes the National Driver Register to release the applicant's adverse driving history information, if any, to the FAA. The FAA uses such information to verify information provided in the application.
Item 20. Applicant's National Driver Register and Certifying Declaration
The applicant should be instructed to sign Item 20 after reading the declaration. The signature should be in ink. If an applicant does not sign the declaration for any reason, the AME shall not issue a medical certificate but forward the incomplete application to the AMCD.
