Title: Generic Clearance for the
Collection of Qualitative Feedback on
Agency Service Delivery.
Form Numbers: There are no FAA
forms associated with this generic
information collection.
Type of Review: Renewal of a generic
information collection.
Background: The information
collection activity will garner
qualitative customer and stakeholder
feedback in an efficient, timely manner,
in accordance with the Administration’s
commitment to improving service
delivery. By qualitative feedback we
mean information that provides useful
insights on perceptions and opinions,
but are not statistical surveys that yield
quantitative results that can be
generalized to the population of study.
This feedback will provide insights into
customer or stakeholder perceptions,
experiences and expectations, provide
an early warning of issues with service,
or focus attention on areas where
communication, training or changes in
operations might improve delivery of
products or services. These collections
will allow for ongoing, collaborative and
actionable communications between the
Agency and its customers and
stakeholders. It will also allow feedback
to contribute directly to the
improvement of program management.
Feedback collected under this generic
clearance will provide useful
information, but it will not yield data
that can be generalized to the overall
population. This type of generic
clearance for qualitative information
will not be used for quantitative
information collections that are
designed to yield reliably actionable
results, such as monitoring trends over
time or documenting program
performance. Such data uses require
more rigorous designs that address: The
target population to which
generalizations will be made, the
sampling frame, the sample design
(including stratification and clustering),
the precision requirements or power
calculations that justify the proposed
sample size, the expected response rate,
methods for assessing potential non-
response bias, the protocols for data
collection, and any testing procedures
that were or will be undertaken prior
fielding the study. Depending on the
degree of influence the results are likely
to have, such collections may still be
eligible for submission for other generic
mechanisms that are designed to yield
quantitative results.
Respondents: Approximately 110,000
Individuals and Households, Businesses
and Organizations, State, Local or Tribal
Government.
Frequency: Once per request.
Estimated Average Burden per
Response: 10 minutes.
Estimated Total Annual Burden:
18,330 hours.

II. Legal Basis
FMCSA has authority under 49 U.S.C.
31136(e) and 31315 to grant exemptions
from certain parts of the Federal Motor
Carrier Safety Regulations. FMCSA must
publish a notice of each exemption
request in the Federal Register (49 CFR
381.315(a)). The Agency must provide
the public an opportunity to inspect the
information relevant to the application,
including any safety analyses that have
been conducted. The Agency must also
provide an opportunity for public
comment on the request.
The Agency reviews safety analyses
and public comments submitted, and
determines whether granting the
exemption would likely achieve a level
of safety equivalent to, or greater than,
the level that would be achieved by the
current regulation (49 CFR 381.305).
The decision of the Agency must be
published in the Federal Register (49
CFR 381.315(b)) with the reasons for
denying or granting the application and,
if granted, the name of the person or
class of persons receiving the
exemption, and the regulatory provision
from which the exemption is granted.
The notice must also specify the
effective period (up to 5 years) and
explain the terms and conditions of the
exemption. The exemption may be
renewed (49 CFR 381.300(b)).
III. Background
Current Regulation Requirements
Under 49 CFR 383.25(a)(1) a CLP
holder must be accompanied at all times
by the holder of a valid CDL who has
the proper CDL group and
endorsement(s) necessary to operate the
CMV. The CDL holder must at all times
be physically present in the front seat of
the vehicle next to the CLP holder while
operating a CMV on public roads or
highways and must have the CLP holder
under observation and direct
supervision.
Applicant’s Request
Werner requests the exemption to
allow CLP holders who have
successfully passed a CDL skills test and
are thus eligible to receive a CDL, be
able to drive without having a CDL
