    "Werner Enterprises has petitioned the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration for a waiver to allow commercial learner’s permit holders who have successfully passed the CDL skills test to essentially be able to drive in team operations.
    Several carriers have previously received similar exemptions from FMCSA, including C.R. England, New Prime, and CRST Expedited.
    The request asks that the pre-CDL drivers be able to drive a truck without having a CDL holder in the front seat of the truck with them."

    Read what it says...
    All Werner is asking for is the driver to not have to go home and wait for their plastic card in the mail. That is all.
    In my mind that should be the default anyway.
    Said person passed their CDL so the only difference is literally if they are carrying a piece of plastic or not....
