Need Class B ELDT CDL Training?

If you're looking to get a Class B CDL license, there are now Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT) requirements (as of February 7th, 2022) that must be met in order to satisfy the minimum standards as set forth by the FMCSA. C1 Truck Driver Training provides the required ELDT curriculum for Class B CDL training and can help you obtain a Class B Commercial Drivers License under these standards.

How Class B ELDT CDL Training Works

In order to create more consistency on a Federal level, the FMCSA has established minimum training standards for individuals applying for their Class B commercial driver's license (CDL) for the first time. These individuals now must meet a set of entry-level driver training (ELDT) requirements. Applicants must complete a specific set of learning provided by an approved training provider listed on FMCSA's Training Provider Registry (TPR). The intent of this course is to meet all theory (knowledge) requirements listed in the federal regulation 49 CFR Part 380, Special Training Requirements.

Individuals who obtain a commercial learner's permit (CLP) on or after February 7, 2022, will need to finish the required Class B ELDT course before they will be permitted to take their CDL skills Test. Upon course completion, the results will be submitted to the FMCSA Training Provider Registry. Before administering any testing services, CDL Testing centers will access these results from the FMCSA Training Provider Registry to confirm that the student has completed the course.

Sections covered in the course are:

  • Basic Operation
  • Safe Operating Procedures
  • Advanced Operating Practices
  • Vehicle Systems & Reporting Malfunctions
  • Non-Driving Activities
