VETERAN’S STORIES & MORE

Celebrating the Launch of Our Hiring Initiative with a Special Day for Veterans

 

On July 1, we invited distinguished veterans to be our guests of honor at the official signing of our Statement of Support for the Guard and Reserve. Public officials and Department of Defense representative joined with Eric Fuller, President and CEO of U.S. Xpress, to salute the contributions of veterans to our nation, and our company. To show our appreciation, we even presented deserving veterans who currently drive for us with the keys to military-themed trucks that celebrate each branch of service!

SKILLS WAIVER INFORMATION

Since 2011, State Driver Licensing Agencies (SDLAs) have the authority to substitute two years of CMV safe driving experience in military equivalents of commercial motor vehicles for the skills test portion of the commercial driver’s license skills test. Military drivers must apply within one year of leaving active duty.

An applicant must:

(a) Certify that, during the two-year period immediately prior to applying for a CDL, he/she:

  1. Has not had more than one license (except for a military license);
  2. Has not had any license suspended, revoked, or cancelled;
  3. Has not had any convictions for any type of motor vehicle for the disqualifying offenses contained in § 383.51(b);
  4. Has not had more than one conviction for any type of motor vehicle for serious traffic violations contained in § 383.51(c); and
  5. Has not had had any conviction for a violation of military, State or local law relating to motor vehicle traffic control (other than a parking violation) arising in connection with any traffic accident, and has no record of an accident in which he/she was at fault; and

(b) provide evidence and certify that he/she:

  1. Is regularly employed or was regularly employed within the last 90 days in a military position requiring operation of a CMV;
  2. Was exempted from the CDL requirements in § 383.3(c); and
  3. Was operating a vehicle representative of the CMV the driver applicant operates or expects to operate, for at least the 2 years immediately preceding discharge from the military.

Some other requirements may apply in your State, but you’ll find the process is designed to make your transition from your military position to a civilian career as easy as possible. For your convenience, the FMCSA has generated the standardized Application for Military Skills Test Waiver form below that addresses all of the issues in the new regulation.*

*Minimum requirements subject to change and may vary by state.
