FMCSA Releases Proposed Rule For Safer CMV Operations On US Highways

Submitted on Apr 08, 2011

FMCSA proposes to amend the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) to incorporate by reference the most recent version of the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, Inc.’s (AAMVA) Commercial Driver’s License Information System (CDLIS) State Procedures Manual (the Manual).

All State driver licensing agencies would use this updated version of the Manual to develop the process required in transmitting, receiving, recording and updating information on a CDLIS driver record. Such information includes, but is not limited to, the commercial driver’s license (CDL) holder’s physical description, commercial and noncommercial driving status, medical certification status, convictions, disqualifications and accidents. The purpose of this proposal is to enhance the safety of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) operations on our nation’s highways.
