    Some commercial driver licenses (CDL) fall under the short-haul exemption for the following reasons

    • Drivers who operate within 150 air miles
    • Do not drive through any state that requires a CDL for the type of vehicle being driven
    • Report back to the same work location every day

    These drivers report to work and either transport their loads to a specific location or complete a daily delivery. They then return their truck and go home.
