The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has added a new section to its Training Provider Registry (TPR) website for drivers who need to complete entry-level driver training (ELDT). The new section includes:

  • Recommended steps drivers can take when selecting a training provider from those listed on the TPR,
  • Information on the training topics required for each class of commercial driver’s license (CDL) and endorsement, and
  • Tips and updates on the ELDT process.

FMCSA strongly urges entry-level drivers to use care when selecting a training provider to help meet their specific training requirements.

The TPR may be accessed at https://tpr.fmcsa.dot.gov.

What is ELDT?

As of February 7, 2022, individuals obtaining an initial Class A or B CDL or a passenger, school bus, or hazardous materials endorsement must complete ELDT offered by an entity listed on the TPR, per §380.609. To be listed on the TPR, an entity must meet specific criteria related to curriculum, instructors, facilities, and equipment.

This training must be successfully completed, and an individual must have proof of this prior to taking the skills test (except in the case of the hazmat endorsement, this proof must be presented prior to the knowledge test) for the new license or endorsement.
