FMCSA Establishes Committee to Update Truck and Bus Driver Training
FMCSA will be forming a 26 member advisory committee that will be tasked with updating classroom and new behind-the-wheel training requirements for professional truck and bus drivers.
“Over the next 30 years, we’re going to be relying on trucks – and truckers – to move more than 40 percent more freight than they currently do,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. “With more people and freight crossing our country than ever before, this committee’s work will be critical to ensuring that commercial drivers are fully capable of operating their vehicles safely.”
