      RELATES TO: KRS Chapter 281A

      STATUTORY AUTHORITY: KRS 281A.040

      NECESSITY, FUNCTION, AND CONFORMITY: KRS 281A.170 sets forth some of the restrictions which may be placed on a commercial driver's license. It further allows the Transportation Cabinet to impose other restrictions as necessary. The standard additional restrictions which may be imposed are set forth in this administrative regulation. While KRS 281A.170(2)(c)4 indicates that the restrictions not listed in statute shall be identified as 1 - 13, the numeric restriction identifiers will relate only to physical restrictions as is currently done on an operator's license. Alpha identifiers were used in KRS 281A.170 for restrictions relating to commercial vehicle equipment. The National Driver Register has requested that additional commercial vehicle restrictions be identified. For consistency, alpha restrictions will be used. Therefore, both alpha and numeric restrictions in addition to the "K" = no airbrakes; "I" = intrastate driving only and "S" = school buses only restrictions listed in KRS 281A.170 are identified in this administrative regulation.

 

      Section 1. Numeric Restrictions. The numeric restrictions regularly used on a commercial driver's license shall relate to the physical restrictions of the commercial driver. The numeric restrictions shall be the following:

      "1" - corrective lenses required to be worn.

      "3" - restricts the driver to a vehicle equipped with an automatic transmission.

      "4" - restricts the driver to daylight driving only.

      Section 2. Alpha Restrictions. The alpha restrictions regularly used on a commercial driver's license shall relate to the restrictions on the types of commercial vehicle the driver is allowed to operate with the exception of the "K", "I", and "S" restrictions set forth in KRS 281A.170(2)(c)4.
