New FMCSA Entry-Level Driver Training Standards Take Effect February 7, 2022

Trucking companies continue to add as many qualified drivers as they are able. Drivers are in short supply, and companies are doing everything that they can to fill positions. As of February 7, 2022, there will be new training standards in place from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) within the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) that those applying for particular CDL licenses or wishing to upgrade their licenses must meet. The goal of these new standards is to provide some uniformity and hopefully make a meaningful difference in driver safety.
