The American Trucking Associations is calling for tougher driver training standards in efforts to raise the safety bar for new drivers entering the industry.

ATA’s board of directors adopted a new safety policy at its winter meeting that calls upon the industry to embrace competency-based training standards, provides guidance on the qualifications for driver-instructors and promotes tougher commercial driver’s license testing for new drivers.

“The federal government should require stronger training standards to ensure that drivers are truly prepared to meet the real-world driving conditions they will face every day,” said ATA President Bill Graves.

“By raising the training standards for both students and instructors along with the testing requirements to obtain a commercial driver’s license,” Graves said, “we ensure that only highly trained drivers are traveling the nation’s roads.”
