Compliance Corner


Updated: May 2

Annual Certification of Violations:

Effective May 9, 2022, motor carriers are no longer required to have their drivers complete an annual list of violations. The final rule, issued on March 9, 2022, removes 49 CFR §391.27, Record of Violations, in its entirety. As a result, drivers are NOT required to complete an Annual Certification of Violations form listing their traffic violations/convictions for the previous year as of May 9th. Any Certificate of Violations form required prior to May 9, 2022, must be completed and retained for three years.

This rule change does not affect the requirements to complete each drivers Annual Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) or Annual Review of the Driving Record form.

Driver's Application for Employment:

Effective May 9, 2022, a driver's application for employment must include information about any unexpired license or permit the driver holds from any licensing authority (not just any "state"), whether from the United States, Canada, or Mexico.

Front Range Compliance Services will be updating the Drivers Application for Employment to reflect these changes. Older applications may continue to be used provided the driver applicant lists all current licenses/permits.

Certification of Road Test:

Effective March 22, 2022, the Certification of Road Test form no longer requires the driver's social security number, license number, or license state. It is not a violation to continue including this information of the Road Test Certificates, but not including it will help ensure privacy.

Front Range Compliance Services will be updating the Road Test and Driver's Certificate of Road with the necessary changes.

If you have any questions about any of the above updated policies, or need assistance please contact your FRCS Account Manager, reach out to us at (720) 951-1184, or email us at

The FMCSA’s COVID-19 waiver for MEC expired on February 28, 2022. The Colorado DMV has initiated cancellations of CDL privileges and automatic downgrade to a non-commercial license for drivers with an expired MEC. The cancellation process began April 15, 2022, and letters will be sent to the affected drivers, giving them 20-days from the date of the letter to obtain and provide the new MEC to the DMV if they choose.

A review of department information indicates that the normal number of CDL cancellations for expired MEC that would have occurred throughout the pandemic and waiver period total approximately 27,000 drivers. As a result, it is anticipated that a similar number of drivers will receive these notifications, with the 20-day window of time provided to submit a renewed MEC If desired.

Colorado Drivers may submit renewals online at, email to, or by fax at 303-205-5709. They may also contact the CDL Unit by phone at 303-205-5922 option 3 for any questions.
