Governor Whitmer signed SB-876
Whitmer signed SB-876 into law, PA-127 of 2020, July
1, 2020, at 1:48 PM. The law extends Michigan school bus drivers’ CDLs,
CLPs, and Medical Examiners certificate expirations until September 30, 2020.
This brings Michigan school bus drivers in line with FMCSA certificate
extensions. To be eligible for the extensions a commercial motor vehicle
operator’s, school bus driver’s, CDL, CLP, and or ME certificate must have
expired on or after March 1, 2020
Commercial licenses, certifications, and endorsements
Additionally, the following commercial licenses, certifications, and endorsements that expire on or after March 1, 2020, would be valid until September 30, 2020:
• A commercial learner’s permit.
• A commercial driver license.
• Medical certification for license holders with a group designation required under 49 CFR 391.45. (However, the extension would not apply to a certification that was not valid before March 1, 2020, or to a person who, since his or her last medical certificate, has been diagnosed with a medical condition that would disqualify him or her from operating a commercial vehicle or has developed a condition requiring an exemption or skill performance evaluation from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.)
