Here’s What You Must Do To Be Considered for FMCSA’s New CMV Driver Panel

Washington D.C. – The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is now accepting applications to be part of its new commercial motor vehicle (CMV) driver subcommittee, announced earlier this month.

On September 18, the FMCSA announced it was forming a new panel comprised of professional drivers for the purpose of receiving feedback on critical issues facing the trucking industry.


The new panel of 20-25 CMV drivers will be a subcommittee to its Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee (MCSAC).

“This new panel will provide direct feedback to FMCSA on important issues facing the driving community — such as safety, hours-of-service regulations, training, parking, and driver experience,” the FMCSA said.

Drivers participating on the panel will include: tractor-trailer drivers, straight truck drivers, motor coach drivers, hazardous materials drivers, agriculture haulers, and more.


On Monday, the FMCSA provided additional details about the panel and how to apply to serve.

“To apply, please submit a resume detailing your driving experience, a personal statement outlining how your qualifications and experience as a driver make you suitable for membership,” an FMCSA statement said. “You may also submit any letter of recommendation you may wish, but it is not required.”

You are asked to email these documents directly to [email protected] by Friday, October 16th if you want to be considered.
