Commercial Driver's License Standards: Application for Exemption; Daimler Trucks North America, LLC (Daimler)
Document Number: 2021-17789
Type: Notice
Date: 2021-08-19
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces that Daimler Trucks North America, LLC (Daimler) has requested an exemption from the commercial driver's license (CDL) requirements for one of its drivers, Gesa Reimelt. Daimler also requested an exemption for the same driver from the requirement to register CDL holders in the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse (Clearinghouse). Ms. Reimelt has a valid German commercial license and will test drive Daimler vehicles on U.S. roads to better understand product requirements in ``real world'' environments and verify results. Daimler believes that the requirements for a German commercial license ensure that the same level of safety is met or exceeded as if this driver had a U.S. CDL.
