On-the-Road Seminar – Motor Vehicle Regulations For Illinois Farmers

Trucking regulations are complicated, and farm exemptions compound that complexity.  Seems everyone has a different answer to your question.  Come join us at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, March 6, 2017 at Kaskaskia College’s Agricultural Building, 27210 College Road, Centralia, IL to sort truth from conjecture and fact from rumor.

We’re hosting this two-hour seminar that focuses on trucking laws—both new and well-worn—specifically for farmers.  We’ll take a special look at the latest rules and you’ll have the chance to ask those farm trucking questions for which for which answers are so elusive.

Laws have been reshaped in the past 24 months with more changes scheduled for 2017!  Rules recently affected include:  the medical card, equipment inspection requirements, out-of-state CDL use, the USDOT Number, post-trip inspections, and something called the URS.  New for 2017 is the MSCR 1, Process Agents and Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs).

We’ll cover these and some of the more-established—but still misunderstood—rules such as the USDOT Number, UCR registrations, and driver’s license classifications.

Presenting the seminar will be Kevin Rund who has specialized in farm transportation issues for the Illinois Farm Bureau for more than 35 years.  And you’ll receive take-home materials covering these topics.

The seminar is free courtesy of your county and state Farm Bureaus and light refreshments will be provided.

Plan now to join us on March 6th at the Kaskaskia College Ag Building at 7:00 pm. and get your trucking questions answered.

RSVP’s are requested to (618) 327-3081 or online at
