Getting ready for ELDT regulations in 2020.

Trust and quality are the hallmarks of any good organization. As the largest association of commercial driving schools in the United States, CVTA school members are often associated with these two qualities, which is why our school members belong to CVTA. Our members are known for their commitment to students, dedication to quality training, and also voluntarily adhering to our membership standards and Code of Conduct. These standards ensure that our school members will be compliant with the Entry-Level Driver Training regulation (ELDT) when it goes into effect in February 2020.

What Is Changing?

CVTA is leading the way to ensure that its members are compliant prior to February 2020. After February 6, 2020, anyone seeking a Class A or Class B Commercial Driver’s License (CDL), along with Hazardous Materials (H), Passenger (P), or School Bus (S) endorsements must obtain formal training by training providers, who are registered with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The ELDT Regulation requires that all schools, employers, or unions must meet a minimum curriculum (classroom, range and road subjects) for Class A & B CDLs, and the above-mentioned endorsements. All training providers must also certify that their student-trainees are proficient prior to sitting for the CDL skills exam, and must also certify that they meet state and local laws and regulations.
