FMCSA is changing the way drivers complete the Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT). It is not just affecting prospective CDL holders but also anyone that is upgrading their CDL to a higher class or applying for the Passenger (P), School Bus (S) or Hazardous Materials (H) endorsement.

Under the new rule, drivers must complete the mandated theory (knowledge) and behind-the-wheel (BTW) training by a provider listed in the new Training Provider Registry (TPR). The training must be completed and the certificate submitted prior to the driver taking the state administered skills test or prior to the knowledge test for the H endorsement. Providers will register with FMCSA and self-certify they meet the requirements for a training provider.

Drivers with a Commercial Learners Permit (CLP) on or after February 7, 2020 will have to meet the requirements of the new ELDT process.
