New Training Standards for Entry-level CMV Drivers

New Training Standards for Entry-level CMV Drivers

 

  Wednesday, February 08, 2017

On Dec. 8, 2016, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issued a final rule that establishes training requirements for individuals applying for a new commercial driver’s license (CDL). The final rule also applies to CDL upgrades and certain CDL endorsements—hazardous materials, passenger or school bus.
The final rule requires affected individuals to complete a course of instruction provided by a qualified training provider listed, or eligible for listing, in a training provider registry that will be created by the FMCSA.
The FMCSA will accept public comments and petitions for reconsideration regarding this final rule until Jan. 9, 2017.
