Analysts see little change in capacity from new CDL rule

Some analysts don’t believe an easing of instruction and testing rules for issuing commercial driver’s licenses will meaningfully change the current tight supply dynamic that exists in trucking.

Federal regulators recently issued a final rule allowing a third-party skills instructor to administer both instruction and qualifying testing to the same driver applicant. Previously, both functions could not be performed by the same instructor for one candidate. States will now have the discretion to decide whether they will allow qualified third-party trainers to complete both functions.
