Washington – The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on Aug. 2 published a notice of proposed rulemaking (.pdf file) that would eliminate the requirement that commercial driver’s license holders report out-of-state traffic convictions to their licensing state within 30 days.

FMCSA stated in the NPRM that the self-reporting requirement is unnecessary because, under the current CDL regulations, if a state in which the conviction occurred has a certified program, it already is required to report the violation to the licensing state within 10 days.

According to the NPRM, all 51 eligible jurisdictions have certified CDL programs.

Comments on the NPRM are due Oct. 1.
