FMCSA COVID-19 Emergency Waivers Update 11/29/21



Today, November 29, 2021, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) extended COVID-19 Emergency Waivers and Declarations.  FMCSA's Emergency Declaration that was set to expire on November November 30, 2021 has been extended until February 28, 2022.  Earlier this month, CVTA and NAPFTDS sent a letter to Deputy Administrator Joshi requesting that the current waivers be extended for at least another three months.  This is the fifth time that we have been successful in getting FMCSA to extend these waivers.

Interest to NAPFTDS members on waivers related to third-party CDL skills test examiners (click on link - FMCSA -Waiver for states concerning third party CDL skills test examiners).  Also CLP holders operating a CMV (click on link-Three-month waiver in response to the COVID-19 Emergency - for States and CLP Holders).

FMCSA has indicated that they intend to review the status of certain waivers as of January 3, 2022 and may take action to terminate the waivers sooner if conditions warrant.
