Details Of Teenage Truck Driver Apprentice Pilot Begin To Emerge

Bloomberg Law reports, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration today published an information collection notice regarding the proposed USDOT pilot apprenticeship program that opens the door to interstate truck driving jobs for a limited number of persons as young as 18. (The program is authorized under section 23022 of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.) The pilot, conceived as a response to truck driver shortage that is contributing to US supply chain problems, “has already raised safety concerns from advocates who argue that younger drivers are more likely to crash.” The notice invites public comment, which must be received by January 12.
