Regulators make it easier to upgrade from B Class commercial driver’s license to CDL Class A
According to article by John Gallagher which originally appeared on freightwaves.com “Training required for a Class A commercial driver’s license (CDL) just became less of a hassle for Class B truck drivers”.
John Gallagher also wrote “The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced on March 5 a final rule streamlining the CDL upgrade process that it says will cut costs. The rule could ultimately help attract and retain drivers”.
According to FMCSA boss Ray Martines “This effort is a common-sense way of reducing the regulatory burdens placed on CDL applicants and their employers,” said FMCSA Administrator Ray Martinez. “FMCSA continues to strategically reform burdensome regulations to improve the lives of ordinary Americans by saving them valuable time and money – while simultaneously maintaining the highest level of safety.”
