Entry Level Driver Training - ELDT
MEET FMCSA's Entry Level Driver Training (ELDT) Requirements
The FMCSA’s new entry-level driver training (ELDT) rule took effect on February 7, 2022. Under the new rule, entry-level drivers (drivers who are applying for an initial CDL, upgrading a current CDL, or obtaining a hazardous materials, passenger, or school bus endorsement) must successfully complete a prescribed program of theory and behind-the-wheel instruction prior to taking the CDL test.
Our online entry-level driver training courses will help you exceed the FMCSA’s mandated theory instruction requirements. These interactive, expert-backed programs are designed to be used in tandem with student and trainer manuals as part of a thorough program.
The ELDT rule requires a standard curriculum in five areas of instruction: Basic Operation, Safe Operating Procedures, Advanced Operating Practices, Vehicle Systems and Reporting Malfunctions, and Non-Driving Activities. There isn't a minimum number of training hours required. However, the instructor must cover all the topics listed within each area of instruction. An assessment is then used to determine the driver-trainee's proficiency. Driver-trainees must achieve an overall minimum score of 80% on the theory assessment.
The Courses listed below can be used to help satisfy the theory instruction portion of the new entry-level driver training (ELDT) requirements that go into effect on February 7, 2020
