In the spring of 2020, a waiver was issued by the Railroad Commission of Texas per the Texas Propane Gas Association's request. This waiver allows both bobtail (local) and transport (regional) drivers to perform delivery operations without a Railroad Commission of Texas certification while Governor Abbott's State of Disaster remains in effect.
The Governor's COVID-19 Disaster Declaration is still in effect and continues to be renewed every 30 days during the peak of COVID-19, but as vaccinations increase, we do not know how much longer the COVID declaration will be extended.
Once declaration eventually concludes, all drivers seeking certification must immediately take and pass the required certification exam before resuming activities requiring certification.
Online as well as Austin and Houston area in-person exams are available through the Railroad Commission. Click here for the class and exam schedule.
