FMCSA to delay compliance deadlines for driver training rule
“Entry-level truck driver training services and state driver licensing agencies (SDLAs) will likely get two more years to comply with new federal training requirements originally scheduled for implementation in seven months.” – According to the article in freightwaves.com and its author John Gallagher, Washington Correspondent
“The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has proposed delaying two provisions in its Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT) rule from February 7, 2020, to February 7, 2022, according to a Federal Register notice published on July 18.
According to the notice, the extension would give training providers more time to upload driver-specific training certification information into the new Training Provider Registry (TPR) database and SDLAs more time to confirm CDL applicants have complied with training requirements before taking a knowledge or skills test.” – Gallagher also wrote in his article.
