Issue

A recently promulgated federal regulation requires certain applicants for commercial driver's licenses (CDLs) to successfully complete entry-level driver training, as specified in the federal regulations, before being licensed. Specifically, those who apply for a CDL for the first time, who upgrade their CDL, or who seek to obtain a passenger, school bus, or hazardous materials endorsement for the first time must complete the training. This bill integrates these entry-level driver training requirements into the statutes governing the Department of Transportation's issuance of CDLs.
