Commercial Driver's License Standards: Application for Exemption; C.R. England
Document Number: 2017-22841
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-10-20
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces its decision to re-affirm renewal of an exemption granted to C.R. England from the regulation that requires a commercial learner's permit (CLP) holder to be accompanied by a commercial driver's license (CDL) holder with the proper CDL class and endorsements, seated in the front seat of the vehicle while the CLP holder performs behind-the-wheel training on public roads or highways. Under this exemption, a CLP holder who has documentation of passing the CDL skills test may drive a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) for C.R. England without being accompanied by a CDL holder in the front seat of the vehicle. The exemption enables CLP holders to drive as part of a team like other C.R. England team drivers. FMCSA has analyzed the public comments in response to the exemption renewal and has determined that the renewed exemption, subject to the terms and conditions imposed, will likely achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved absent such exemption.

Hours of Service of Drivers: Application for Exemption; MBI Energy Services (MBI)
Document Number: 2017-22834
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-10-20
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces its decision to deny the application of MBI Energy Services (MBI) from the requirement that a motor carrier install and require each of its drivers to use an electronic logging device (ELD) to record the driver's hours of service (HOS) no later than December 18, 2017. MBI had requested the exemption for all of its vehicles equipped with a single-passenger cab, which are used in applications where travel is incidental to normal work activities and which require special oversize/overweight permits to travel on public roads. FMCSA has analyzed the exemption application and public comments, and has determined that the applicant would not achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved absent such exemption. FMCSA therefore denies MBI's application for exemption.
Hours of Service; United Parcel Service Inc. Application for an Exemption From Certain Electronic Logging Device Requirements
Document Number: 2017-22833
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-10-20
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announces its decision to grant part of United Parcel Service Inc.'s (UPS) application for a limited 5-year exemption from various provisions of the mandate to use electronic logging devices (ELD). FMCSA published a final rule in December 2015 that requires most motor carriers and drivers who are currently required to prepare and retain paper records of duty status (RODS) to use ELDs for hours-of-service (HOS) compliance effective December 18, 2017. Among other things, the December 2015 rule requires (1) certain data elements to be automatically recorded when an authorized user logs in or out of an ELD or changes duty status, and (2) a driver's indication of special driving status to reset to none (except in the case of personal use) if the ELD or commercial motor vehicle's (CMV) engine goes through a power-off cycle. FMCSA grants exemptions to allow (1) all motor carriers and drivers that use portable, driver-based ELDs to record engine data only when the driver is in a CMV and the engine is powered, and (2) all motor carriers to configure an ELD with a yard-move mode that does not require a driver to re-input yard-move status every time the tractor is powered off. The Agency has determined that granting these temporary exemptions would not have an adverse impact on safety, and that a level of safety equivalent to or greater than the level of safety provided by the regulation would be maintained.

SDDC currently holds an exemption valid through October 27, 2018. The exemption renewal is for five years and allows SDDC contracted-drivers to use 30 minutes or more of attendance time to meet the HOS rest break requirements, provided they do not perform any other work during the break. The terms and conditions of the current exemption remain in place for the five-year period.
