2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill establishes a Commercial Driver License Testing Pilot Program. Under the program, the Chief Administrator of the Motor Vehicle Commission is required to appoint three private third party vendors to administer the knowledge and skills tests for commercial driver licenses or endorsements. The vendors are to be located in the northern, central, and southern regions of the State. In implementing the pilot program, bill requires the chief administrator to identify and compile a list of eligible third party vendors to provide testing. The chief administrator also is required to establish guidelines necessary to establish and oversee the administration of commercial motor vehicle driver testing by private third parties. The bill requires the three vendors chosen to participate in the program to be fully operational within 90 days of the bill's effective date. Within nine months of the bill's effective date, the chief administrator is required to submit to the Governor an evaluation of the pilot program with recommendations that will facilitate the permanent use of third party vendors. Under current law, the chief administrator is authorized to appoint third party vendors to administer the tests for commercial driver licenses or endorsements. However, third party vendors are not currently utilized to provide these tests. This bill amends section 13 of P.L.1990, c.103 (C.39:3-10.21) to require the chief administrator to contract with third party vendors. The appointment of third party vendors is to be based on the chief administrator's evaluation of the pilot program established by the bill. The bill removes the chief administrator's discretion to terminate third party testing at any time.
