A10219 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A10219
 
SPONSOR: Rules (Conrad)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to the period for which commercial learner's permits are valid   PURPOSE: This bill will alleviate the shortage of commercial drivers by extending the validity of a commercial learner's permit to one year as permitted by federal law.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill would amend Vehicle and Traffic Law (VTL) § 503(1)(b) to eliminate the 180-day limit on the validity of a commercial learner's permit and provide that such permits shall be valid for no more than such time as allowed under federal law. This act shall take effect one-hundred eighty days after it shall have become a law.   EXISTING LAW: VTL § 503(1)(b) currently provides that a commercial learner's permit shall be valid for no more than one hundred eighty days. The federal law, at 49 CFR §§ 383.25(c) and 383.73(a)(3), provides that commercial learner's permits shall be valid for no more than one year from the date of issuance.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: None.   STATEMENT IN SUPPORT: This proposal will alleviate concerns over a shortage of commercial drivers. By extending the time that a commercial learner's permit is valid to the longer one-year validity period currently permitted by federal law, prospective truckers and other commercial drivers will face fewer administrative hurdles to joining the commercial driving profes- sion. Additionally, commercial drivers in training will be met with reduced costs in that they will no longer need to renew a commercial learner's permit after one hundred eighty days or apply for the full commercial driver license (CDL) at that time.   POSSIBLE OBJECTIONS: None known.   BUDGET IMPLICATIONS None.

        Introduced  by  COMMITTEE ON RULES -- (at request of M. of A. Conrad) --
          (at request of the Department of Motor  Vehicles)  --  read  once  and
          referred to the Committee on Transportation
 
        AN  ACT  to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to the period
          for which commercial learner's permits are valid
 
          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section 1.  Paragraph (b) of subdivision 1 of section 503 of the vehi-
     2  cle  and traffic law, as amended by section 3 of part I of chapter 58 of
     3  the laws of 2015, is amended to read as follows:
     4    (b) An application for a license shall be valid for a period  of  time
     5  specified  by regulation of the commissioner not to exceed five years. A
     6  learner's permit shall be valid from its issuance until  the  expiration
     7  of  the  application  for  a  driver's  license for which it was issued.
     8  Provided, however, a commercial learner's permit shall be valid  for  no
     9  more  than  [one  hundred  eighty  days,  except that such permit may be

    22  vals  as required by the federal motor carrier safety improvement act of
    23  1999 and Part 383.71(h) of title 49 of the code of  federal  regulations
    24  and  in a manner prescribed by the commissioner; or (iii) the receipt by
    25  the commissioner of information from the issuing medical examiner or the
    26  federal motor carrier safety administration that a medical certification
    27  or medical variance was issued in error or rescinded.  The  commissioner

     6  "not-certified"  medical  certification  status  and that the commercial
     7  motor vehicle privileges of such commercial  learner's  permit  will  be
     8  cancelled  unless he or she submits a current medical certificate and/or
