Keep Your Drivers Current on Safety and Regulatory Compliance Training
By Tosha Missel, PacLease Marketing Specialist
With an average of 300 billion miles logged every year, Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) drivers must pass stringent skills and knowledge testing by the State governments responsible for issuing Commercial Drivers Licenses (CDLs). Once a CDL is obtained, a driver must continue to maintain it. A serious traffic violation can affect a CDL holder’s ability to maintain their CDL certification, in addition to disruption of business operations. Nonetheless, Commercial Driving remains a lucrative and in-demand occupation.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects an average of 231,100 heavy and tractor-trailer truck driver job openings each year, from 2022 to 2030. Many openings will be a direct result of employees switching occupations or exiting the labor force for retirement.
As new drivers enter the workforce many fleets will need to navigate safety and regulatory compliance training for unseasoned drivers.
