Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration March 6, 2019 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Commercial Driver's License Upgrade from Class B to Class A
Document Number: 2019-04044
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-03-06
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA amends the entry-level driver training (ELDT) regulations published on December 8, 2016, titled ``Minimum Training Requirements for Entry-Level Commercial Motor Vehicle Operators'' (ELDT final rule), by adopting a new Class A CDL theory instruction upgrade curriculum to reduce the training time and costs incurred by Class B commercial driver's license (CDL) holders upgrading to a Class A CDL. This final rule does not change the regulatory text proposed in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM). The Agency believes that this modest change in the Class A theory training requirements for Class B CDL holders upgrading to a Class A CDL maintains the same level of safety established by the ELDT final rule, and the regulatory burden reduction will result in annualized cost savings of $18 million.
