MI-SOS FMCSA Changes
The SOS finally indicated what it was going to do regarding the FMCSA options about CLP & CDL expiration extensions, the 14-day weight limit for CDL skills tests, and CDL medical examination expiration extensions. They are summarized below what SOS will do.
1. On February 12, 2021, FMCSA sent to MI-SOS options to extend until May 31, 2021, CDL and CLP expirations and not hold to the 14-day wait before a CDL skills test. In addition, FMCSA required all states, including Michigan, to extend approved CDL medical examinations until May 31, 2021.
