This week, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) extended the CDL/CLP/Medical Certificates waiver that was set to expire on Dec. 31. FMCSA recognizes that backlogs remain at State Driver’s License Agencies (SDLA) across the country. In addition, the Agency noted a resurgence of stay-at-home orders and other emergency measures that may cause further economic and logistical disruptions.
This waiver becomes effective on Jan. 1, 2021 and expires on Feb. 28, 2021. It is important to note that the waiver provides states with the authority to extend expiration dates but it is up to the state to do so. TANY will work with the Governor’s office and the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles to extend compliance dates in New York in accordance with the federal waiver.
Drivers need to go online to NY DMV, https://dmv.ny.gov/ and in the Search box, they need to type “Make a Reservation”, make a reservation, then scroll down and hit, K for Kings County and scroll down to the blue box that says Make a reservation in Kings County
Per New York State Law, as of February 3, 2021, drivers of stretch limos (vehicles altered to carry 9 or more passengers including the driver) are required to have, at a minimum, a CDL class C license with a P endorsement, allowing them to carry passengers.

Do you need a SCAC Code?
What is a SCAC Code? Do you Qualify?
The Standard Carrier Alpha Code (SCAC) is a system that assigns unique two-to-four letter codes to transportation companies for identification purposes. The National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) developed the SCAC identification codes in the late 1960s to facilitate computerization in the transportation industry. It is for Customs entry, when doing business with many shippers, on rate tariffs filed with regulatory agencies, government bills of lading and on bids for government traffic.
Questioning why You received a SCAC Code Renewal Notice?
If it is from the National Motor Freight Traffic Association, it is valid. Be careful, if it is not, it could be a SCAM! It is possible that a SCAC code was gotten at one-point in time last year, either because of crossing the border or maybe someone in the company applied for it not knowing that they did not really need it.
~The more you know~
Not all motor carriers are required to possess a SCAC code, and the DOT, or any other government agency, will not shut down or fine a carrier simply because the motor carrier is not in possession of a SCAC code. There are no regulations requiring compliance with SCAC documentation and registration.
