The National Driver Certification Program® (NDCP), owned and operated by TRAA, was launched in 1995 with the encouragement and support of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The NDCP retains its distinction as the only industry certification program recognized by the Federal Highway Administration and is considered the “gold standard” with many states and municipalities requiring it to operate in these areas.
