In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FMCSA announces its plan to submit the renewal Information Collection Request (ICR) described below to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for its review and approval and invites public comment. This Information Collection (IC) is voluntary and may be utilized by certified Medical Examiners (ME) responsible for issuing Medical Examiner's Certificates (MEC) to commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers. Certified MEs who choose to use this IC do so in an effort to communicate with treating healthcare professionals, who are responsible for prescribing certain medications, so that the certified MEs fully understand the reasons the medications have been prescribed. The information obtained by this IC assists the certified MEs in determining if drivers are physically qualified and if there are medical conditions or being treated with certain prescribed medications that would adversely affect the drivers' ability to safely operate CMVs. FMCSA requests approval to renew an ICR titled, ``391.41 CMV Driver Medication Form.'' In response to the Federal Register notice published on July 3, 2019, requesting public comment, FMCSA received two comments.
Commercial Driver's License Standards: Application for Exemption; Wilson Logistics
Document Number: 2019-24100
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-11-06
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces that Wilson Logistics has applied for an exemption from the requirement that the holder of a Commercial Learner's Permit (CLP) be accompanied by the holder of a Commercial Driver's License (CDL), seated in the front seat, while the commercial motor vehicle (CMV) is being driven by the CLP holder. Specifically, Wilson Logistics requests an exemption to allow CLP holders who have successfully passed the CDL skills test to drive a CMV without having a CDL holder seated in the front seat. Wilson Logistics states that the CDL holder would remain in the CMV while the CLP holder is driving, but not necessarily in the passenger seat. Wilson Logistics believes that the exemption, if granted, would promote greater productivity and help individuals who have passed the CDL skills test return to actively earning a living faster. FMCSA requests public comment on Wilson Logistics' application for exemption.
