Medical Certification with DUI

I recently went to get my Class 1 Medical Certification and as expected due to a DUI 6 years ago was unable to obtain until the FAA goes through their approval process.

Can anyone who has been through this process let me know what information/documentation they requested so I can begin obtaining the pertinent information to reduce this process time?


Every case is different but in general they want EVERYTHING you can possibly obtain on the arrest. If you don’t provide it, they’ll have to look for it which will prolong the process.


Thank you. This was a big help. I will start getting everything together.

It could also be the time of your case my AME said the FAA usually wants to see a time from if 7 years from when the incident happened. Every case is different But hopefully everything goes smoothly for you in the process.
