Title: +Training for Entry-Level Drivers of Commercial Motor Vehicles 
Abstract: This action is in response to section 4007 of the Motor Carrier Act of 1991 (title IV of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991). The Department has initiated a rulemaking on the need to require training of all entry-level drivers of commercial motor vehicles. The agency has submitted a report to Congress (02/05/96) on the effectiveness of private sector efforts to ensure adequate training of all entry-level drivers. This report included a cost-benefit study of requiring training of entry-level drivers. Public comments have been solicited on the report. This rulemaking action is considered significant because of substantial public interest.
