FMCSA Requires States to Revoke CDLs for Drug, Alcohol Violators

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issued a new rule effective Nov. 8 to mandate states to not issue, renew, upgrade, or transfer CDL or commercial learner's permits after one or more drug and alcohol violations recorded in the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse. State driver's licensing agencies must remove CLP or CDL privilege and require states receiving Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program grant funds to adopt a compatible CMV driving prohibition.  IFCA will keep monitoring this issue.  If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out KJ at with more questions.
