Entry-Level CDL Regulation Update

After February 7, 2022, cities that have entry-level drivers either seeking to obtain a Class A commercial driver’s license (CDL) or a Class B CDL for the first time; upgrade an existing Class B CDL to a Class A CDL; or obtain a school bus (S), passenger (P), or hazardous materials (H) endorsement for the first time must now follow Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT) regulations.

ELDT regulations do not apply to individuals not required to have a CDL as outlined in 49 CFR part 383 or for whom the state has waived the CDL skills test.

Otherwise, all entry-level drivers must select a training provider listed on the Training Provider Registry. Only those registered training providers can submit certification of a driver’s completion of entry-level driver training to the Training Provider Registry.
