LCV Regulation Clarified-Again

Don't feel bad if this LCV Regulation stumps you. It stumps me at times too. Here is more clarification from our previous post.

Your experienced driver can teach and certify the skills portion. They could have written this regulation much better.

Any driver that has more than 2 years experience (with a similar type of vehicle) can teach and certify if they meet the requirements of 380.111(b).

A driver with less than 2 years experience can teach and certify if they have experience teaching the operation of an LCV within the last 2 years. That is the waiver in 380.303 (b). 

Essentially, A driver with more than 2 years experience can teach. A driver with less than 2 years can teach if they have taught. Figure out that logic.

You can use to satisfy the classroom portion of the regulation and obtain the docs required.
