ENTRY-LEVEL DRIVER TRAINING
New regulations set by the FMCSA now require entry-level drivers who obtained their CLP (commercial license permit) on or after February 7, 2022, to successfully complete "Entry Level Driver Training" (ELDT) before being permitted to take their (commercial driver’s license) CDL skills tests.
This training must be provided by a school or entity listed on the FMCSA
Training Provider Registry.
WHO IS CONSIDERED AN ENTRY-LEVEL DRIVER?
Any individual wanting to:
-Obtain a Class A CDL or Class B CDL for the first time.
-Upgrade an existing Class B CDL to a Class A CDL.
-Obtain a school bus (S), passenger (P), or hazardous materials (H) endorsement for the first time.
FMCSA ELDT Requirements
FMCSA requires theory training with a registered training provider. Theory and behind-the-wheel training must be successfully completed before you can take your CDL Skills Test.
We provide this portion of the ELDT online.
In addition to the theory training, FMCSA also requires behind-the-wheel instruction with a registered training provider before you can take your CDL Skills Test.
We provide one-on-one behind-the-wheel training.
