Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration February 23, 2006 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Commercial Driver Instruction Permits; Withdrawal
Document Number: E6-2554
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-02-23
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA withdraws its notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on additional minimum Federal standards for State-issued learner's permits that allow drivers to be trained in the operation of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs). The NPRM requesting comments was published on August 22, 1990, at 55 FR 34478. The comment period was extended to November 30, 1990 (55 FR 42741, October 23, 1990). FMCSA determined that the issues addressed in the NPRM and the public comments on these issues do not reflect many initiatives and activities that occurred after publication of the NPRM. Therefore, the 1990 NPRM is obsolete and it is in the public interest to withdraw it.
