Ohio warns commercial drivers about updated rules

CDL holders required to self-certify type of driving by Jan. 30


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio is notifying thousands of commercial driver license holders that those privileges could be canceled if they don't self-certify their type of driving by January 30 under updated federal regulations.
The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles has mailed letters to notify nearly 125,000 CDL holders who haven't submitted proper certification forms ahead of the deadline.
Ohio had roughly three times that many CDL holders last year. The people required to have such licenses include those who drive tractor-trailers.
Federal regulations now require such drivers to certify that their driving falls into one of several categories. That includes specifying whether they travel across state lines and in some cases whether they have a required medical certificate.
