Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration August 8, 2018 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Commercial Driver's License: Application for Exemption; Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR)
Document Number: 2018-16949
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-08-08
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces that it has received an application from the Missouri DOR for a renewal of its exemption from the Agency's commercial driver's license (CDL) regulations. These regulations require a driver to pass the general knowledge test before being issued a Commercial Learner's Permit (CLP). The exemption renewal would allow the Missouri DOR to continue to waive the mandatory knowledge test requirement for qualified veterans who participated in dedicated training in approved military programs. The Missouri DOR states that its goal is to continue to assist qualified veterans in obtaining employment when returning to the civilian workforce, and granting this exemption renewal will assist those veterans who have already been through extensive military training. The Missouri DOR currently holds an exemption for the period of October 27, 2016, through October 29, 2018, and is requesting a 2-year renewal. FMCSA requests public comment on the Missouri DOR's application for exemption.
