Effective February 7, 2022
Certain drivers are subject to ELDT requirements, CFR 49 380 Subpart F, and must complete training mandated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). This includes those applying to:
The ELDT requirements must be verified prior to taking a CDL skills test or prior to the knowledge test for an 'H' endorsement. The ELDT regulations are not retroactive and do not apply to individuals holding a valid CDL or an S, P, or H endorsement issued prior to February 7, 2022.
If an applicant who obtains a CLP prior to February 7, 2022, obtains a CDL before the CLP or renewed CLP expires, the applicant is not subject to the ELDT requirements. If a CDL is not obtained prior to the expiration of the CLP, the applicant is subject to the ELDT requirements.
Any individual who meets one of the exceptions for taking a skills test in 49 CFR Part 383 is also exempt from the ELDT requirements.
Some of the driving skills obtained include:
