Companies can improve their transportation safety and compliance programs by offering drivers access to Vector Solution's 30 new Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT) theory-based courses within the Transportation Safety and Compliance Library.
In 2022, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced new ELDT compliance requirements for new drivers seeking to obtain a Class A or B Commercial Driver's License (CDL) for the first time and existing truck drivers seeking to upgrade an existing Class B CDL to a Class A CDL. The requirement ensures entry-level drivers receive theory-based training to meet the requirements before getting or upgrading their CDL.
The January/February issue of Heavy Duty Trucking reports that over the last year, companies that manage fleets and drivers have felt the challenge to comply and locate an authorized vendor to fill this need. Companies with CDL needs must quickly invest in training to remain compliant and keep their drivers working safely and efficiently.
FMCSA’s Entry-Level Driver Training regulations set the minimum federal requirements that training entry-level drivers must complete before testing for certain commercial driver’s licenses and CDL endorsements.
