Starting July 1, 2018, all new CDL applicants will be required to complete the training before receiving their license. Current CDL holders must complete the training before the next regular renewal of their licenses through the Kansas Department of Revenue (KDOR). KDOR will include information about the new requirement in postcard renewal notices that are routinely sent to current CDL holders when their licenses are due for renewal.
Attorney General Schmidt has approved Truckers Against Trafficking to provide the training, which involves watching a brief educational film and answering questions about the film. The training takes about 30 minutes. It must be completed only once, not each time a driver renews. It is free of charge.
The required training can be completed individually online either directly from the TAT website, at the Kansas Motor Carriers Association location in Topeka or at certain KDOR locations across the state. A printed certificate of completion should be presented upon application or renewal of a CDL. It is the responsibility of the applicant to obtain a printed copy of the certificate of completion and to present it at the time of application or renewal of a CDL. Individuals who have previously completed TAT training before the requirement went into effect and who have received certificates of completion through TAT will not be required to take the training again.
