Alert to Carriers from FMCSA

Recently FMCSA have received numerous inquiries regarding the companies who use aggressive marketing tactics to sell both supervisor training and products, such as logbooks, to carriers.

FMCSA logo
For Drivers:
According to 49 CFR § 395.8 - Driver's record of duty status every driver should keep a record of their duty status and a format for that record.

FMCSA does not sell or support companies that market products, such as logbooks, to employers.
For Employers:
Under 49 CFR § 382.603 - Training for supervisors employers may also be required to make sure that supervisors are attending mandatory drug and alcohol training.

FMCSA does not certify trainers or training companies and it does not pre-approve the curriculum presented.

It is an employer’s choice to select which sort of training and products are needed for the aforesaid guidelines.

Independent companies may try to market products and services to employers using the public information provided in the FMCSA site.

If a carrier receives an advertisement that improperly claims an alliance with either of these
  • The Department of Transportation


  • Attempts to obtain personal banking

  • Credit card information not related to a purchase

please contact the

Investigator for the FMCA Mr. Tom Frazier at (540) 504-6436.
