Entry Level Driver Training
Beginning February 7, 2022, in order to provide instruction to an individual wanting to obtain a Class A or B CDL, upgrade from a Class B to Class A CDL, or obtain a passenger, school bus, or hazmat endorsement, an entity must meet all of the ELDT (Entry Level Driver Training) requirements and must be listed on the TPR (Trainer Provider Registry).

The individual will be denied the test until he or she has proof of successfully completing a course of instruction, provided by an entity listed on the TPR.
