Driver Licenses and Driving Records

Commercial Driverís License

Vehicle operators will maintain appropriate licenses for the types of vehicles they are subject to operating. Bus operators, for example, must have a CDL with passenger endorsement (P). Laws applicable to each state and jurisdiction should be followed. Refer to Public Law 99-570.

Driving Record Checks

Each driver is responsible for ensuring their license is kept current and will not drive GSA or owned vehicles if their license is expired or has been revoked for any reason. Drivers shall notify their supervisors when licensing issues arise. Prior to checking out any sub-pool vehicles, operator licenses will be checked.

Alcohol and Drug Abuse

The Department of Transportation requires drivers with CDLs to undergo drug and alcohol testing in what is referred to as designated positions. CFR49 Part 40 and Part 382 apply. The program should include testing in six cases and applies to all CDL licensed personnel.

  1. Pre-employment

  3. Random
  4. Reasonable suspicion
  5. Return to duty
  6. Follow-up
