New Federal Requirements for CDL Holders

Recently, the Department of Motor Vehicles began to notify people who hold Commercial Drivers Licenses (CDLs) of two new federal requirements they must meet by January 30, 2014. At the November 26th Connecticut Fire Chiefs Association meeting, Bob McGarry summarized those changes and provided information on an up-coming change as to who can conduct CDL physical examinations.  Please see the attached handout. Also, please note Bob stressed these changes do not affect the Q endorsement.
