This Federal Motor Carrier Highway Safety Regulations Guide is intended to provide educational and technical assistance to the motor carrier industry and provide basic guidance on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). It is not intended to be a substitute for the regulations. To purchase a complete copy of the FMCSRs, Parts 300-399, contact the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC 20402, telephone number: (866) 512-1800 (in the Washington, DC Metro area (202) 512-1800) or at www.access.gpo.gov.

This guide is comprised of eleven parts, each containing a specific safety regulation topic that is covered in the FMCSRs. These parts are listed in the Table of Contents. Each part contains information sheets that cover the highlights of that section. Some sections contain sample forms and we encourage you to reproduce any or all material in this package and to distribute copies as needed.

It is the responsibility of motor carrier operators and drivers to know and comply with all applicable FMCSRs. Safety compliance and safe operations translate into saved lives and property. We believe the information in this package, when effectively applied, will contribute to safer motor carrier operations and highways.
