In January is it a new law that for anyone who getting a new cdl must take a 3 week course? As opposed to company paying someone $300 for there driver to go take test? An hope they pass on first try? Sorry if it dont make sense
Thanks cause i was curious. i never heard it either, an i couldnt find anything on it. Company telling us we need to get by January, if not its a new law to where have to go to a 3 week class. An the cost was gonna be like $6000.
Beginning February 7, 2022, all entry-level operators of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) in both interstate and intrastate commerce who are applying for a commercial driver's license (CDL) must first satisfactorily complete minimum training requirementsbefore taking their state-administered CDL examination.
you've never needed to complete a school to get a CDL, however you would need to actually know how to drive etc plus have or have access to a truck/trailer for the test. Now, getting hired by a carrier without schooling is a different story. They are the one's that think a 160 hour school is the answer, or, actually their insurance carriers. So it looks like our heavenly senators or congressmen are coming up with a "new" rule, that being, complete a school before you can test for a CDL ! Have fun out there !
