New Training Regulations Take Effect
New driver training regulations on Monday, Feb. 7, will cement a federal standard to obtain a commercial driver’s license. The new rules, which look to tighten how truck driving schools teach and train new drivers, have been in the works for nearly seven years.
The revised Entry-Level Driver Training regulations won’t affect current CDL holders—unless they seek to upgrade or obtain different commercial driving levels. The rules are aimed at drivers obtaining their first CDL; upgrading their CDL from a Class B to Class A; or obtaining a new hazmat, passenger, or school bus endorsement.
