FMCSA proposes delay of Entry-Level Driver Training Rule due to IT glitches

From Transport Topics.

Federal trucking regulators have proposed a two-year delay for compliance with certain provisions in the Entry Level Driver Training rule to allow more time for development of the secure electronic transfer of information to the certified training provider registry and state driver licensing agencies.

“The proposed two-year extension would delay the date by which training providers must begin uploading driver-specific training certification information into the Training Provider Registry, an electronic database that will contain entry level driver training information,” the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced July 18 in the Federal Register.

“It would also delay the date by which state driver licensing agencies must confirm that applicants for a commercial driver’s license have complied with ELDT requirements prior to taking a specified knowledge or skills test,” the agency said.
