You must register with us before you can certify that a commercial driver who works for you has the skills and training necessary to operate a commercial motor vehicle safely.
You aren’t required to submit a course outline or curriculum for approval. That requirement only applies to private CDL career schools and public colleges offering CDL training.
To register as an employer:
After we’ve reviewed and approved your registration form, we’ll mail you a letter with the unique employer ID number assigned to your company by the CDL Program. You must put this number on each Commercial Driver Employer Certification form you issue. You can’t certify an employee until you’ve been issued this unique employer ID number.
Any time you add or delete an authorized signer, you must complete and submit a new Commercial Driver Employer Registration form as described above.
After you’ve registered with us and received your unique employer ID number, you may certify that commercial drivers who work for you have the skills and training necessary to operate a commercial motor vehicle safely. Employees won’t need certification to take CDL knowledge or skills tests, but must present an original certificate when they are issued their CDLs.
