DRIVER QUALIFICATION - 

One of the the toughest tasks you have 

Complying with driver qualification requirements is daunting. Compliance includes understanding your state’s licensing regulations as well as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations 49 CFR Parts 383 and 391 (FMCSRs).   And your level of compliance directly impacts your Driver Fitness BASIC. 

Failure to certify drivers properly for credentials, experience, or medical qualifications opens your operation to a host of risks and liability that come with an unfit driver.

J. J. Keller® Encompass® Fleet Management System, helps you ensure that every CMV driver is fully qualified according to the current regulations.
