Partnerships between universities and government, law enforcement, and state drivers licensing agencies can promote incredible change.
Designed to support law enforcement, state drivers’ licensing agencies, and universities within the FMCSA Eastern Service Center (ESC), the Commercial Vehicle Safety Technical Assistance Program (CV-STAC) provides guidance for development and/or expansion of partnerships and new programs, as well as replication of existing programs.
