Driver Qualification Files: Application for Exemption; Knight-Swift Transportation Holdings, Inc.
Notice of application for exemption; request for comments.
FMCSA announces that Knight-Swift Transportation Holdings, Inc. (Knight-Swift) has applied for an exemption from regulations requiring motor carriers to obtain the motor vehicle record (MVR) of its drivers holding a commercial driver's license (CDL) whenever the driver's MVR is updated by a new medical examination. Knight-Swift seeks exemption only when a newly-hired driver undergoes a medical examination. Knight-Swift suggests that in these cases it be permitted to satisfy this requirement by obtaining other proof of the results of the medical examination. FMCSA requests public comments on the request for exemption. The application is available in the docket.
