Knowledge Testing of New Entrant Motor Carriers, Freight Forwarders and Brokers
FMCSA announces that it will hold two public listening sessions on March 28 and April 7, 2014, to solicit ideas and information concerning sections 32101 and 32916 of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act. These provisions require the assessment of applicants' knowledge of regulations and industry practices for persons seeking registration authority as motor carriers [property, passenger, and household goods (HHG)], freight forwarders, and brokers. These listening sessions are the second and third in a series through which the Agency requests information from interested parties concerning potential test topics, the relationship between the knowledge testing requirement and the Agency's Unified Registration System (URS) program, and test development and delivery. The sessions will be held at the Mid America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville, KY, and the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) Workshop in Los Angeles, CA. The previous session was held on January 13, 2014, at the American Bus Association's (ABA) Marketplace conference in Nashville, TN. All comments will be transcribed and placed in the docket referenced above for FMCSA's consideration. The entire days' proceedings are open to the public and will be Webcast with an opportunity provided for on-line comments.
Agency Information Collection Activities; Revision of a Currently-Approved Information Collection Request: Training Certification for Drivers of Longer Combination Vehicles
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FMCSA announces its plan to submit the Information Collection Request (ICR) described below to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for approval and invites public comment. FMCSA requests approval to revise the ICR entitled ``Training Certification for Drivers of Longer Combination Vehicles (LCVs),'' due to a change in the estimated number of annual responses. This ICR relates to Agency requirements for driver certification to operate LCVs that motor carriers must satisfy before permitting their drivers to operate LCVs. Motor carriers, upon inquiry by authorized Federal, State or local officials, must produce an LCV driver-training certificate for each of their LCV drivers.
