NEW: Entry Level Driver Training (ELDT): Individuals obtaining a commercial driver's license or upgrading a commercial driver's license will be subject to new federal and state requirements.

Air Resources Board (ARB) Regulations: All owners of diesel trucks, trailers and transport refrigeration units or “reefers” that operate in California are required to take steps to reduce air pollution. Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is necessary to meet federally imposed clean air standards and to reduce the adverse health effects from pollution. Find all of CTA's ARB regulatory fact sheets in the Member Info Hub.

Basic Inspection of Terminals (BIT) Program: The program allows the CHP to determine if motor carriers are complying with motor carrier safety regulations, particularly regarding the legal requirement to maintain commercial motor vehicles according to a scheduled maintenance (preventive maintenance) program.

Electronic Logging Device (ELD Rule): The rule is intended to help create a safer work environment for drivers and make it easier and faster to accurately track, manage and share records-of-duty-status (RODS) data.

Federal Hours of Service Regulations and State Hours of Service Regulations: These rules are intended to reduce driver fatigue by limiting the number of daily and weekly hours drivers spend driving and working.
