FMCSA Making Traffic Conviction Reporting Change

CDL license holders no longer will be required to report their out-of-state traffic convictions to the state where they are licensed, if the proposed rule is enacted.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has published a proposed rule that would end the current requirement that holders of commercial driver's licenses report any out-of-state traffic conviction against them to the states where they are licensed. The requirement is redundant because states with certified CDL programs also are required to report such convictions to the licensing states, and every state and the District of Columbia have certified programs.

Many states have reported they do not have systems in place to process individuals' information and prefer receiving the reports officially from other states, according to the rule.

The proposed rule is published in the Aug. 2 issue of the Federal Register, with comments being accepted for the next 60 days. Once the change takes effect, the regulatory burden on states and individual drivers will be lessened while still ensuring states receive accurate, timely information about their CDL holders’ out-of-state convictions, FMCSA stated in the proposed rule.
