Commercial Driver's License Standards: Application for Exemption; Navistar, Inc. (Navistar)

Notice of final disposition; grant of application for exemption.

FMCSA announces its decision to grant an exemption to Navistar, Inc. (Navistar) and five engineers/drivers from the commercial driver's license (CDL) regulations for Jonas Hellstr[ouml]m, Sofie Svanstr[ouml]m, Erik Holma, Jonas Udd, and Mikael [Ouml]un. These Swedish project engineers who will test drive commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) for Navistar within the United States. All five engineers work for Scania AB in Sweden (part of the Volkswagen Group), which is partnering with Navistar to develop improved fuel economy and emissions reductions. The Scania drivers all hold valid Swedish commercial licenses and need to test drive Navistar vehicles on U.S. roads to better understand product requirements in ``real world'' environments and to verify results. FMCSA believes the requirements for a Swedish commercial license ensure that operation under the exemption will likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater than the level that would be obtained in the absence of the exemption.
