3:50 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. -- FMCSA closing remarks by Larry Minor, FMCSA Associate Administrator for Policy

The NASDPTS conference also offered presentations by other federal officials, including David Cooper from the Transportation Security Administration, Larry Minor from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Jennifer Keller from the Environmental Protection Agency and Thomas Barth from the National Transportation Safety Board.
Larry Minor, the associate administrator on policy for the FMCSA, explained the updates made to the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners in "Understanding Medical DOT and Fit for Duty Requirements.
The FMCSA also has simplified requirements for drivers with insulin-treated diabetes and mild sleep apnea, Minor said.
A driver using insulin hadn't been able to get a medical certification unless they received an exemption from the FMCSA, but now, if the treating clinician and medical examiner agree that the driver is managing the condition, they can receive certification.
"We know we have a [large] population of insulin-dependent bus drivers not disclosing that they have diabetes," Minor said. "Instead of [having them] remain in the shadows, we've cleaned up the regulations so that they don't lose employment and income. That's better for everyone."
Minor told attendees that if a driver with obstructive sleep apnea is using a CPAP machine and has verification that it is working for them, that could be sufficient for medical certification.
That information would go into a database, to be used as a tool for managers when hiring new drivers, Minor said.
Driver training is another area that is seeing changes. Prospective drivers must now go through 30 hours of behind-the-wheel training for a class A CDL and 15 hours of behind-the-wheel training for a class B CDL. As with medical examiners, all driver trainers used must be listed on a Training Provider Registry. Training providers must submit training certificates to the FMCSA. Minor assured audience members that they just need to certify their training program meets the FMCSA requirements and agree to send training certificates to the organization.
The reason behind the change, Minor said, is that Congress is looking to get rid of CDL mills.
"We're taking the luck out of it and making sure that all applicants get well-structured training," he explained.
The FMCSA will also soon revisit vision requirements, Minor added.
