Part 380 Appendix – Entry Level Driver Training (ELDT)

Guidance Q&A

Question 24: Will the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) provide any training materials for any of the various entry-level driver training (ELDT) curricula in the regulations?

Guidance: No. FMCSA does not intend to provide written or electronic training materials for any of the curricula set forth in the regulations, nor will the Agency endorse specific materials or vendors. The ELDT curricula establish the minimum requirements for the content of each theory or BTW component. The Agency anticipates, however, that there will be variations in how the ELDT curricula are presented, depending on how a training provider prefers to present the material.  In addition, training providers are permitted to add any additional curriculum elements they deem appropriate.
