CDL comment periodextended to May 23

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has extended the time for comments on its proposal for minimum training requirements for entry-level commercial vehicle operators to May 23, according to information published in the Federal Register March 24.

The initial deadline was March 25. FMCSA proposed that following a certain date, persons applying for new or upgraded CDLs would be required to successfully complete specified minimum classroom and behind-the-wheel training from an accredited institution or program. The proposed rule (49 CFR Parts 380, 383, and 384) would not apply to drivers who currently possess a CDL or obtain a CDL before a date three years after a final rule goes into effect.

More information is available about the proposal online in the Federal Register..
