Talking about driver training

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announces that it will hold a public listening session Monday, January 7, 2013, from 9:00-11:00 a.m. and from 2:00-4:00 p.m., ET, to solicit ideas and information on the issue of entry-level training for drivers of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs).

Specifically, the Agency solicits input on factors, issues, and data it should consider in anticipation of a rulemaking to implement entry-level driver training (ELDT) provisions.

The session, which will be held at the American Bus Association (ABA) Marketplace meeting in Charlotte, NC, will allow interested persons to present comments and relevant new research on ELDT. All comments will be transcribed and placed in the docket (reference Docket ID FMCSA-2007-27748) for FMCSA’s consideration. The entire day’s proceedings will be webcast.  If all interested in- person participants have had an opportunity to comment, the session may conclude earlier.

The listening session will be held at the Charlotte Convention Center, 501 S. College Street, Charlotte, NC 28202, (704) 339-6000, in Room 207 A and B. In addition to attending the session in person, you can  participate via the Internet. Find out how  on the FMCSA Web site  .
