Correcting amendments.


FMCSA published a final rule in the Federal Register on Monday, May 9, 2011, that became effective on July 8, 2011. That final rule amended the commercial driver's license (CDL) knowledge and skills testing standards and established new minimum Federal standards for States to issue the commercial learner's permit (CLP). Since the final rule was published, FMCSA identified minor discrepancies regarding section references in existing regulatory text resulting from the final rule. This document corrects those section references.


This final rule is effective on May 8, 2012.
