Utah hosted a FMCSA SPE class
Utah hosted a Federal Skills Performance Evaluation Training course this last week, the Skill Performance Evaluation program is for Commercial Motor Vehicle drivers who drive in interstate commerce.
The SPE certification allows drivers with missing or impaired limbs to drive Commercial Motor Vehicles across state lines if they have been fitted with and are wearing the right prosthetic device, and the driver can demonstrate the ability to drive the truck safely by completing on-and off-road activities. If the driver passes the driving test, he or she will receive a SPE certificate.
Over the years, FMCSA has granted more than 3,000 SPE certificates to truck drivers who have shown that they can drive safely on the nation’s highways.
This is a course designed to train Commercial Examiners and 3rd party testers to test these individuals.
We have individuals from 8 jurisdictions including Utah that participated in this course.
If you would like additional information on the SPE process or certificates, feel free to contact Ryan Williams (801-965-4451) or John Holt (801-957-8694) with the Driver License Division.
