WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is now accepting applications for its new commercial motor vehicle driver subcommittee. This panel, which is a subcomponent of the Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee (MCSAC), will provide direct feedback from commercial drivers to the FMCSA about important issues facing the driving community, such as safety, hours-of-service regulations, training, parking and driver experience.

The new panel will be comprised of 20 to 25 drivers from all sectors of the CMV industry — tractor-trailer drivers, straight-truck drivers, motor-coach drivers, hazardous-materials drivers, agriculture haulers and more. FMCSA’s goal with the new driver panel is to capture the wide array of viewpoints and experiences within the CMV community.

To apply, drivers are asked to submit a resume detailing their driving experience, as well as a personal statement outlining how these qualifications and experience as a driver make them suitable for membership on this panel. Drivers may include a letter of recommendation, but this is not required. Documents should be emailed directly to [email protected] by Friday, Oct. 16, 2020.
