Is a CDL required for workers who move CMV's around a terminal, in/out of garages, or parking lots? No public road use, just repositioning trailers or trucks within a facility.

A CDL is not required for persons operating CMVs wholly within the private property of a facility. See Question 5 at the DOT website http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/rules-regulations/administration/fmcsr/fmcsrruletext.aspx?reg=383.3&guidence=Y:

Question 5: May a person operate a CMV wholly on private property, not open to public travel, without a CDL? Guidance: Yes.

 

NOTE: A CDL is required under certain circumstances for government workers operating CMVs within the boundaries of state and local government property.
