Commercial Drivers Have some Relief on their Expiring CDLs, Medical Cards and Tax Reporting

Truck drivers with expiring licenses or medical cards have been given an extension because of difficulties renewing during the COVID-19 crisis. The relief is from FMCSA, CVSA and IRS on certain tax extensions.

FMCSA Gives Commercial Drivers Extension on Expiring CDLs, Medical Cards 

  • The FMCSA issued a limited waiver for commercial drivers whose commercial licenses/permits and/or medical cards have expired or are set to expire after March 1st, 2020.
  • The waiver is effective immediately and valid through June 30th, 2020.
  • This comes as a response to state DMV and medical clinic closures that have made it difficult for commercial drivers to renew expiring licenses or medical cards.
  • Commercial drivers must still hold an appropriate license for the vehicle they are operating and must have been deemed physically qualified to operate a commercial motor vehicle.
  • Drivers and carriers should be aware that states may still enforce the prohibitions on operating a commercial motor vehicle without a valid, non-expired license, so attention should be paid to individual states.

On the other hand, the number of affected people in China is getting lesser and lesser as days pass by and at one point last week the reported cases were zero. This is a sign of hope that people can recover from the infectious virus. As per the official statement by the government, they have successfully started to implement the vaccines in humans to study in bringing down this virus spread to a halt.
