USTDTS shall exclude no persons from participation, deny any benefits, or subject any person to any form of discrimination based upon gender, race, age, creed, religion, nation of origin, or physical disability.
Applicants should, however, be aware that acceptance into the USTDTS programs are based upon eligibility to obtain a CDL license, and when applicable, employment. For this reason, students admitted to USTDTS must meet the basic qualifications as mandated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) which may include but are not limited to, the possession of a current DOT medical card, being able to communicate in English, both orally and in writing, and the ability to meet driver record eligibility requirements. The institution is responsible for any reasonable accommodations of students who are identified to have special needs.
More information about eligibility, requirements, and limitations according to the FMCSR may be found in the Michigan Commercial Driver’s License Manual Introduction (pg. I-Xiii) or the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, 49 CFR S. 383-CDL Standards, Requirements and Penalties and S. 391- Qualifications of Drivers.
