Update 4/14/2020 from FXG:
Road test and observed hours eliminated for Graduated Qualifications – L10 in support of social distancing guidelines
In an ongoing effort to follow social distancing guidelines, changes to the Graduated Qualifications (GQ) – Level 10 (L10) program (<10,001 lbs., non-commercial weight) will be made until further notice. As part of these changes, a driver qualification file (DQF) will not be created for L10 driver candidates. This means neither a road test nor observed hours will be required to qualify for L10. However, a valid DOT physical and medical examiner’s certificate, MVR, drug screen and qualified L10 certificate of online completion are still conditions which must be satisfied to qualify under L10. These changes apply only to the L10 program and are temporary under the circumstances. All other GQ conditions remain the same.
How to begin:
All candidates will continue to complete an online profile via First Advantage (FADV).
When sending the invitation to a candidate that will operate a branded vehicle less than 10,001 lbs. GVWR as part of the L10 program, service provider selects:
After reviewing the completed application profile, service provider places the order using the following selection:
These selections will alert First Advantage that a DQF is not required. It is imperative that these selections are used properly to reduce delays in the qualification process.
A valid DOT physical, medical examiner’s certificate, MVR, drug screen, and L10 certificate of online training (see vendors) are still required. The medical examiner’s certificate and L10 certificate should be provided to local FedEx Ground station management during the workforce documents and badging processes. FedEx Ground station management will enter the medical card expiration date into CDAS to facilitate dispatch. Neither document needs to be retained by station management. DO NOT upload the documents to FADV. Candidates and their authorized officer (AO) should be ready to produce these documents at any time upon request.
