On-Demand Course: Human Trafficking and the Impact on Commercial Driver’s Licenses
The National Traffic Law Center (NTLC) has created an education tool for prosecutors, law enforcement and other traffic safety professionals titled: “Human Trafficking and the Impact on Commercial Driver’s Licenses.” This on demand training module is designed to educate about the Federal “No Human Trafficking on Our Roads Act” (NHTRA) which was signed into law on January 1, 2018 by President Donald J. Trump. As a result of NHTRA, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced a final rule that imposes a lifetime ban on drivers who are convicted of a severe form of human trafficking in a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) from operating a CMV. This rule was signed into law on July 23, 2019. Under this rule, states have until September 23, 2022 to comply with this mandate. FMCSA allowed a three-year period to permit states sufficient time to seek legislation, update their regulations, and make the appropriate information technology changes to apply the lifetime ban.
Human Trafficking and the Impact on Commercial Driver’s Licenses is designed to be presented as a stand-alone training, or an individual module to be added to existing trainings. The Participant Guide is available for online course attendees to follow along with the webinar.
