Lack of Driver Training Truck Accidents
Truck driver training and certification is important to the safe driving of trucks, tractor-trailers and semi-trucks which are large, complicated vehicles traveling Georgia and Atlanta’s road and highways. Motor vehicle carriers and drivers are required to ensure that before they get on the road, drivers are properly trained. Drivers must not only have proper commercial licensing, but must also have the proper training and certification for the type of vehicle they are driving.
There are many federal regulations that cover the training required for those driving large commercial vehicles and especially what are called longer combination vehicles (LCV’s), for example. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations require training and certification for drivers behind the wheel of these vehicles. Their employers must not allow untrained drivers to operate these trucks. An unqualified truck driver can cause a catastrophic accident that leads to severe injury or death.
The team of Atlanta truck accident lawyers at Scholle Law, with our founder Charles Scholle, know that truck driver training and certification are vital to the safe operation of these massive and heavy vehicles. The victims of improperly trained or untrained truck drivers are often either seriously injured or lose their lives due to a lack of care for those sharing the road with them.

We vigorously pursue those responsible to recover what victims deserve after a major truck accident.
Under Code of Federal Regulations, 49 sections 380 et seq., the requirements for both drivers and operators for the proper training and certification of drivers is set out in detail. These regulations not only establish the training required, they also establish testing requirements and the proper administration of testing by qualified instructors, especially with regard to LCV operation. There are many aspects of this training that includes such things as safe evasive maneuvers to avoid accident, safe carrying of hazardous materials and many other aspects of safe driving. The law in Georgia mirrors the federal law in that our state adopts the federal regulations and requires that trucking companies follow these stringent safety requirements.
