FMCSA Recognizes Date Discrepancy in Commercial Driver's License Testing and Permit Standards Rule

on .

On March 25th AAMVA published a notice regarding the FMCSA amendment to its Commercial Driver's License Testing and Commercial Learner's Permit Standards rule. AAMVA noted that there was a discrepancy between the actual compliance date of July 8, 2015 and the requirement for standardized endorsement and restriction codes on Commercial Learner's Permits and CDLs of July 8, 2014. FMCSA has since noted this error and has indicated that all aspects of the final rule have a compliance date of July 8, 2015. FMCSA has decided not to do a stand-alone correction rule for this single issue, but instead plans to include it as part of an agency-wide corrections rule to be issued later this year. FMCSA wants to ensure jurisdictions know they are aware of this technical error and that the compliance date for all new requirements in the May 9, 2011 and March 25, 2013 final rules is July 8, 2015.
