FMCSA announces plans to issue proposed entry-level driver training rule

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, March 15, 2016

FMCSA has issued a proposed rule for entry-level driver training that would revise the standards required for new interstate and intrastate commercial vehicle operators to obtain a commercial driver license. The proposal does not specify a minimum number of hours that driver-trainees must spend on classroom theory, but it would require that Class A CDL driver-trainees receive a minimum of 30 hours of behind-the-wheel training, with a minimum of 10 hours on a driving range. Class B CDL driver-trainees must receive a minimum of 15 hours of behind-the-wheel training, with a minimum of seven hours of public road driving (Transport Topics).
