CDL ELDT Resources

Regulations related to entry-level drivers seeking to obtain their commercial driver’s license (CDL) took effect in February 2022. The Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT) regulations and associated Training Provider Registry were mandated under the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) of 2012.

The training requirements under the ELDT apply to those seeking the following licenses:

  • Obtain a Class A 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
