OOIDA Pushes For Driver Training Standards in New Highway Bill
Currently there are no training standards for entry-level commercial operators and the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) is trying to change that.

Since a new highway bill is currently in the making, OOIDA thinks now is the best time to demand from Congress that training standards be included in it “rather than waiting for the administration to do it on its own.”
