This exemption is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2020. The relief granted by Exemption 18522 has been in effect since April 08, 2020.

Telephone: 202–366–4354; email nicole.michel@dot.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: Section 5506 of the FAST Act requires FMCSA to produce a study on CDL skills test delays on an annual basis. The requirements of the study are to submit an annual report describing: ‘‘(A) the average wait time from the date an applicant requests to take a skills test to the date the applicant has the opportunity to complete such test; (B) the average wait time from the date an applicant, upon failure of a skills test, requests a retest to the date the applicant has the opportunity to complete such retest; (C) the actual number of qualified commercial driver’s license examiners available to test applicants; and (D) the number of testing sites available through the State department of motor vehicles and whether this number has increased or decreased from the previous year.’’ The annual report is also required to describe ‘‘specific steps the Administrator is taking to address skills testing delays in States that have average skills test or retest wait times of more than 7 days.’’ If this information collection does not occur, FMCSA will not be able to continue to conduct the study on CDL skills test delays. This data collection aims to continue to create longitudinal data where currently there is none. If the information collection occurs on a less-than-annual basis, FMCSA will not be able to make observations on yearly trends or analyze differences between States. For the initial 2017 survey FMCSA met with several stakeholders, including the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, the Commercial Vehicle Training Association, and State Driver Licensing Agencies to ensure the information being collected was not already collected elsewhere and was not available to FMCSA. FMCSA conducted extensive background research to ensure the study was not duplicative. A previous study, done by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) in 2015, asked for similar information but did not produce specific enough data to be used in this study. The survey will continue to be sent out via email, with the option for online completion using SurveyMonkey® or Qualtrics. Each State can continue to respond via email or the online survey tool depending on which method is more convenient for the respondent. E:\FR\FM\10JNN1.SGM 10JNN1
