Who needs to comply with CDL driver requirements and regulations?

School contractors need to be in compliance with all CDL driver qualification requirements and regulations (FMCSR 391). It should be noted while there is an exemption for "to and from school" operation, there is no such exemption for trips performed by contractors. School transportation performed by a state or political subdivision of a state (i.e., municipalities) are exempt from some CDL requirements.

Title VI

Title VI, one section among eleven other titles contained within the Civil Rights Act of 1964, is a federal law providing that:

"No person in the United States shall, on the grounds of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefit of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance."

42 U.S.C. 2000d Subsequent federal legislation has led to further protections under Title VI based upon age, gender, and disability, whether mental or physical.
