The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is doing some housecleaning on its commercial license rule.
The rule now requires both states and drivers to report an out-of-state traffic conviction to the driver’s home state.
The agency, as part of an ongoing effort to reduce the burden of regulations, is going to eliminate the redundancy. Starting the end of May, drivers will no longer have to report the conviction if it occurs in a state that is CDL certified.
The final rule is being published in Friday’s Federal Register.
