DRIVER REQUIREMENTS: Parts 383 and 391 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations contain some requirements that as a driver you must comply. These requirements are as follows:
(1) POSSESS ONLY ONE LICENSE: You, as a commercial vehicle driver, may not possess more than one motor vehicle operator’s license. If you have more than one license, keep the license from your state of residence and return the additional licenses to the states that issued them. DESTROYING a license does not close the record in the state that issued it—you must notify the state. If a multiple license has been lost, stolen, or destroyed, close your record by notifying the state of issuance that you no longer want to be licensed by that state.
(2) NOTIFICATION OF LICENSE SUSPENSION, REVOCATION OR CANCELLATION: Sections 392.42 and 383.33 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations require that you notify your employing or contracting motor carrier by the NEXT BUSINESS DAY of any revocation, cancellation, or suspension of your driver’s license. In addition, Section 383.31 requires that any time you violate a state or local traffic law (other than parking), you must report it within 30 days to: 1) your employing or contracting motor carrier; and 2) the state that issued your license (if the violation occurs in a state other than the one that issued your license). The notification to both the company and state must be in writing.
(3) Violation of the above mandate can and will result in the termination of your employment or contract, whichever applies. ShypDirect policy requires immediate notification of any incident that affects your driver license status. Written notice is required within 24 hours following an incident (refer to Incident Policy for more details).
The following license is the only license I will possess, and should I update and/or change this license I will immediately notify ShypDirect:
