Commercial driver’s license requirements
After extremely lengthy consideration by the federal government, Entry-Level Driver Training for truck drivers, as well as other commercial motor vehicle (CMV) operators, is set to go
into effect in February. Its long history goes back more than a decade before the creation of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in 2000.
Beginning February 7, 2022, all entry-level operators of CMVs in both interstate and intrastate commerce who are applying for an A, B, or C commercial driver’s license (CDL) must first satisfactorily complete minimum training requirements before
taking their state-administered CDL examination.
This year, NGWA will be reviewing the impact of these new requirements on the industry and be exploring the potential for certain exemptions for groundwater-related CMVs.
