Georgia Department of Public Safety now Offering Training for Georgia Intrastate Motor Carriers

ATLANTA—The Motor Carrier Compliance Division (MCCD) of the Georgia Department of Public Safety is now offering educational video training on commercial motor vehicle safety and motor carrier safety operations for Georgia intrastate motor carriers. This training meets the training requirements for the Georgia Intrastate Motor Carrier (GIMC) Registration program.  The training is offered free of charge and began October 1.

According to Georgia law, motor carriers operating commercial motor vehicles solely in intrastate commerce are required to register their companies under the GIMC program. To apply or renew existing registrations, applicants must provide proof that an educational seminar on motor carrier safety was completed. “This video will satisfy the educational requirement of the GIMC Registration Program and provide insight on ways to safely operate commercial motor vehicles on the highways of Georgia,” said Major Johnny Jones, MCCD commanding officer.

“The Department of Public Safety is firmly committed to implementing strategies and programs that increase highway safety thereby providing a safer transportation experience for our citizens and our motorists. Our goal in providing this safety-oriented training is to help educate and increase the knowledge of our intrastate motor carriers,” Major Jones added.
