The CDLPI financial assistance program objective is to provide financial assistance to States and other eligible entities to aid participation in the National CDL program.
The ultimate goal of the National CDL Program supports the Department’s strategic goals and FMCSA’s mission by
ensuring that only qualified drivers are eligible to receive and retain a CDL.
The National CDL program focuses on the concept that each driver has only one driving record and only one licensing document, commonly referred to as "One Driver — One License — One Record." Further, the National CDL program requires States to to conduct knowledge and skills testing before issuing a Commercial Learner’s Permit (CLP) and/or CDL; to maintain a complete and accurate driver history record for anyone who obtains a CLP and/or CDL; and to impose driver disqualifications as appropriate
