FMCSA Under 21 Interstate Driver Pilot Program non-military

Today, May 15th, 2019 Administrator Ray Martinez with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration published notice in the Federal Register under Docket Number FMCSA-2018-0346 seeking comments on a new pilot program to allow drivers under 21 years old to operate in Interstate Commerce. This proposal is in addition to the current under 21 pilot program for drivers with military experience.

Comments are due no later than July 15th, 2019 and may be submitted in any of the below

• Federal eRulemaking Portal: Follow the online instructions for submitting comments.

• Mail: Docket Management Facility, U.S. Department of Transportation, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, West Building, Ground Floor, Room W12-140, Washington, DC 20590-0001.

• Hand Delivery or Courier: West Building, Ground Floor, Room W12-140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

• Fax: 1-202-493-2251.

This proposal will help small towing operations by allowing for younger drivers to enter the towing industry before they chose other career paths. This is especially important for family owned companies that want the next generation to be able to legally operate unrestricted.
Please submit your comments in support, or opposition to this pilot program as soon as possible.
