The entry-level driver training (ELDT) rule has been delayed for two years. The new compliance date is February 7, 2022. Though the rule has been delayed, schools and training entities should continue to prepare for this final rule, as the requirements are complex. It will take a substantial amount of time to implement all curriculum, facility, equipment, and instructor requirements.
This course can be used to help satisfy the theory instruction portion of the new entry-level driver training (ELDT) requirements that go into effect on February 7, 2022. To satisfy the theory instruction requirements, this course must be assigned and administered by a school or other entity listed on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Training Provider Registry (TPR). To satisfy the complete ELDT training requirements, the school or entity conducting the training must provide the driver-trainee "behind-the-wheel" instruction in addition to theory instruction.
