The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has requested comments until May 27 on various questions related to the need for and potential benefits and costs of implementing a graduated commercial driver’s license (GCDL) for commercial drivers. A law approved by Congress almost five years ago requires the Department of Transportation to assess the merits of implementing a GCDL. A graduated driver’s license is a system designed to ease beginning drivers into the traffic environment under controlled exposure to progressively more difficult driving experiences.
