The FMCSA ( Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration ) mandates that once a calendar year every motor carrier must re-qualify every commercial driver.
Basically, this means that a number of documents must be collected and analyzed, and a decision that the driver is still qualified to drive in interstate commerce – or not – is made.
The process involves evaluation of
- CSA points
- Accident register
- Citation register
- Annual certification prepared by the driver
- A new MVR ( motor vehicle report from the state that issued the license)
Yes, annually a decision that every driver is still qualified to drive in interstate commerce is made again, and – yes – it is possible to be disqualified by this annual process.
