Federal Motor Carrier Regulations Expert:
C.R. England Granted Exemption for Learner’s Permit!

FMCSR Expert Witness / Truck Driver Standard of Care Expert Witness Articles

By Scott Greene

In December of 2014, Evidence Solutions’ Heavy Truck Division wrote about C.R. England’s application to be exempt from the requirement that a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holder be present in the front seat of the Tractor while a learner’s permit holder drives. This requirement is based upon Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulation (FMCSR) subpart 383.25(a)(1), the Commercial Learner’s Permit (CLP) regulation.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has granted the requested exemption from federal regulations. The exemption allows for the CLP holder to drive while the CDL holder is in the bunk of the truck. A CDL holder must, however, still be present in the truck.

C.R. England applied for the exemption in December 2014, as a way to mitigate effects of trucking’s driver shortage. The company said it would allow for more new entrant drivers into the industry.

C.R. England cited the cost of sending the permit holder to their home state to obtain their full CDL license as one reason for the exemption. Specifically the company said that airfare and bus fare cost too much for the motor carrier to spend. The exemption allows C.R. England to run a team operation until the learner’s permit holder can be routed to his or her home state to be granted a temporary CDL.

The exemption was granted to C.R. England, which is based in Salt Lake City Utah, for a period of two years. The company claims to be the world’s largest refrigerated trucking company.
