FMCSA opens comments period for “take your CDL knowledge test in other states than yours” proposal
“The FMCSA proposes to allow driver applicants to take the commercial driver’s license (CDL) general and specialized knowledge tests in a State (the testing State) other than the applicant’s State of domicile.
Under this proposed rule, a State would not be required to offer the knowledge tests to out-of-State applicants. However, if the testing State elects to offer the knowledge tests to these applicants, it would transmit the results to the State of domicile, which would be required to accept the results.
Because this proposal would not change the existing standards for the administration of the knowledge tests, the Agency concludes it would have no detrimental impact on safety.” – According to FMCSA / regulations.gov
