19A NCAC 03G .0207       RENEWAL OF CERTIFICATION

Every driver must be re-certified at the time of the expiration of his Commercial Driver License upon passing the four written tests (general knowledge, passenger transport, school bus, and air brakes), a pre-trip inspection observation, a driving observation, and an eye screening.  A driver shall be exempted from the written tests, provided he has accumulated no more than three points on his driving record since his last certification and has had at least one hour of in-service training for each year since his last certification.  A driver whose certification expires may be re-certified within 30 days in the same manner as though his certification had not expired.  Any driver whose certification expires for more than 30 days may be re-certified within the next year following the expiration upon passing the four written tests (general knowledge, passenger transport, school bus, and air brakes), the three skills tests (pre-trip inspection, basic skills, and road), and an eye screening.  If more than one year has elapsed since the expiration of the most recent certification, the applicant must complete the full training course required of a beginning driver.
