The Disqualified Driver: Overview
The regulations pertaining to driver qualifications include specific instructions regarding when, why, and how long an otherwise qualified driver will be disqualified for certain acts. These regulations deal with the driver who has already been qualified, and is presumably already driving a commercial motor vehicle. However, they do not describe all disqualifying events that may occur during employment. For example, a driver who fails to submit his “record of violations” “at least once every twelve months” becomes disqualified. It also includes additional regulations that can cause a driver to be disqualified. These, too, must be kept in mind when reviewing a driver’s history.
