[Docket No. FMCSA-2007-27659]
RIN 2126-AB02


Commercial Driver's License Testing and Commercial Learner's 
Permit Standards

AGENCY: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), (DOT).

ACTION: Correcting amendments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: FMCSA published a final rule in the Federal Register on 
Monday, May 9, 2011, that became effective on July 8, 2011. That final 
rule amended the commercial driver's license (CDL) knowledge and skills 
testing standards and established new minimum Federal standards for 
States to issue the commercial learner's permit (CLP). Since the final 
rule was published, FMCSA identified minor discrepancies regarding 
section references in existing regulatory text resulting from the final 
rule. This document corrects those section references.

DATES: This final rule is effective on May 8, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Robert Redmond, Office of Safety 
Programs, Commercial Driver's License Division, telephone (202) 366-
5014 or email robert.redmond@dot.gov. Office hours are from 8:00 a.m. 
to 4:30 p.m.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This document corrects section references in 
a final rule amending the commercial driver's license (CDL) knowledge 
and skills testing standards, which was published in the Federal 
Register on Monday, May 9, 2011 (76 FR 26853).
