The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced this week it again wants to perform a formal information collection process to ensure states are complying with federal requirements dictating commercial driver’s license issuance programs.

The FMCSA wants to be sure the states are playing by the rules on CDL programs.

The State Commercial Driver’s License Program Plan is part of 2012’s MAP-21 highway funding act, which requires states to submit a plan to the U.S. DOT describing the actions they will take to address any problems in their CDL programs, as identified by the DOT in its most recent audit of a state’s program.

The information collected is to ensure states “are complying with notification and recordkeeping requirements for information related to testing, licensing, violations, convictions and disqualifications, and that the information is accurate, complete and transmitted and recorded within certain time periods as required” by federal law.

The agency is accepting public comment on its information request for 30 days. Click here visit the rulemaking portal to make a comment.
