CDL Requirement Changes For February 2022

On February 7, 2022, the U.S. Department of Transportation is changing the rules for obtaining or upgrading a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). The change is called Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT). On or after February 7, 2022, drivers will need to pass in-depth classroom and behind-the-wheel training from an FMCSA-registered training provider prior to:

  1. Obtaining a Class A or Class B CDL for the first time.
  2. Upgrading an existing Class B CDL to a Class A CDL
  3. Obtaining a School Bus (S), Passenger (P), or Hazardous Materials (H) endorsement for the first time.

Drivers will still be able to take the knowledge test needed to obtain a commercial learners permit (CLP) without entry-level training but will need training before taking a CDL or endorsement skills test (or the H endorsement knowledge test). If drivers currently have a Commercial Learners Permit (CLP) and it expires, they will be required to complete the ELDT to sit for the exams.
