Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT)

Note: Beginning February 7, 2022, entry-level drivers will be subject to the requirements in the Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT) regulations. This includes drivers applying to:  

  •  Obtain a Class A or Class B CDL for the first time
  •  Upgrade an existing CDL to a higher class
  •  Obtain a school bus (S), passenger (P), or hazardous materials (H) endorsement for the first time

The ELDT regulations establish a Federal standard for training CDL applicants. Applicants must successfully complete this training before they will be permitted to:

  • Take the CDL Skills Test or 
  • Take the H Endorsement Knowledge Test

Drivers will search for a training provider using the Training Provider Registry on the FMCSA website. For more information, visit FMCSA ELDT Regulations.
