Minimum Training Requirements for Entry-Level Commercial Motor 
Vehicle Operators

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

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: FMCSA is correcting a final rule that appeared in the Federal 
Register of December 8, 2016 (81 FR 88732), regarding the establishment 
of new minimum training standards for certain individuals applying for 
their commercial driver's license (CDL) for the first time; an upgrade 
of their CDL (e.g., a Class B CDL holder seeking a Class A CDL); or a 
hazardous materials (H), passenger (P), or school bus (S) endorsement 
for the first time.

DATES: The effective date of this correction is February 6, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Richard Clemente, Driver and 
Carrier Operations (MC-PSD) Division, FMCSA, 1200 New Jersey Ave SE., 
Washington, DC 20590-0001, by telephone at 202-366-4325, or by email at 
MCPSD@dot.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FMCSA makes minor corrections to fix 
errors in the final rule published on December 8, 2016. In instruction 
10, amending Sec.  383.73, the Agency corrects ``(b)(10)'' to read 
``(b)(11)'' in both the instruction and associated regulatory

text. Additionally in Sec.  383.73, FMCSA changes paragraph ``(e)(8)'' 
to read ``(e)(9)'' in both the instruction and associated regulatory 
text. In instruction 13, amending Part 383, the Agency changes ``Sec.  
384.235'' to read ``Sec.  384.236.'' These changes are required because 
as written, the instruction and associated regulatory text would have 
deleted the recent changes published in the Federal Register on 
December 5, 2016, in the final rule titled ``Commercial Driver's 
License Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse'' (Clearinghouse) (81 FR 87686, 
RIN 2126-AB18, Docket No. FMCSA-2011-0031). FMCSA makes these 
corrections in this document to ensure the original language in the 
Clearinghouse final rule remains in effect.
