FMCSA Announces Two-Year Delay of Its Entry-Level Driver Training Rule By Attorney Joe Pappalardo The FMCSA announced today, January 29, 2020, that there will be a two-year delay of its entry-level driver training rule. While it was originally set to go into effect on February 7, 2020, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced that it has been pushed back until February 7, 2022. According to Transport Topics, the FMCSA said that the extension will also provide state licensing agencies with sufficient time to modify their information technology systems and procedures to accommodate their receipt of driver-specific ELDT data from the registry. We will continue to monitor this update and provide additional information as it is disseminated.
