Safe Driver Apprenticeship Pilot Program

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), or Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), Section 23022, requires the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to establish an apprenticeship pilot program that would allow drivers 18-20 years old with an intrastate commercial driver’s license to operate interstate commerce. To meet this requirement, FMCSA established a three-year-long Safe Driver Apprenticeship Pilot Program (SDAP) for these drivers to explore interstate trucking careers and help trucking companies hire and train new drivers. Read more here.
