Ask Congress to Support the LICENSE Act of 2023!
The Licensing Individual Commercial Exam-takers Now Safely and Efficiently (LICENSE) Act of 2023 is a bipartisan bill to help address supply chain shortages and increase the number of truck drivers transporting goods in America. The LICENSE Act would streamline burdensome licensing regulations by making permanent several waivers that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) implemented in response to COVID-19. This bill was recently reintroduced in the 118th Congress by U.S. Representatives Darin LaHood (D-IL), Henry Cuellar (D-TX), Troy Balderson (R-OH), Jim Costa (D-CA), Dusty Johnson (R-SD), and Josh Harder (D-CA). 

The bill would allow state and third-party examiners who have maintained a valid commercial driver’s license (CDL) test examiner certification and have previously completed a CDL skills test examiner training course to administer the CDL knowledge test without completing a CDL knowledge test training course. The continued availability of CDL knowledge testing will help maintain an adequate and sustained supply of trained truck drivers. The LICENSE Act would also allow states to administer driving skills tests to applicants from other states. This will streamline the credentialing process and allow future truck drivers to be tested where they live, rather than solely where they received training.

NLBMDA members are encouraged to contact their elected officials and ask them to cosponsor and pass the LICENSE Act of 2023.
