  Federal Agency Denies Idaho’s Bonding Exemption Application for Third-Party Commercial Drivers’ License Test Administrators
 

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) recently denied the Idaho Department of Transportation’s application to exempt its contractors from the bond requirement applicable to third-party commercial drivers’ license (CDL) test administrators. SFAA submitted comments to FMCSA to highlight the benefits of the bond requirement, specifically protecting the Idaho DOT through the surety’s prequalification and claims handling services. Notably, FMCSA stated that the “bond requirement is a business standard that not only provides a higher degree of assurance that the CDL tests performed meet FMCSA and State requirements, but that the tests are also performed by qualified individuals as agents of the State.”
