General Assembly Extends CLP Expiration Date & Makes Vision Screening Easier for CDL Drivers
April 21, 2023
The trucking industry’s current and future drivers should benefit from the passage of Senate Bill 709. Starting October 1, 2023 this new law:
- Extends the expiration date of a commercial learner’s permit (CLP) from 180 days to one year.
- Removes duplicative state vision screening procedures for CDL holders who have a valid medical qualification. Those drivers will not have to take the vision screening test when renewing their CDLs as long as their medical qualifications are up to date.
