Part 380 Appendix – Entry level Driver Training Guidance Q&A Question 19: Are there specific hours of behind-the-wheel (BTW) training mandated for the various curricula?
Question 19: Are there specific hours of behind-the-wheel (BTW) training mandated for the various curricula?
Guidance: No. The entry-level driver training (ELDT) regulations do not require a minimum number of hours for the completion of BTW training (e.g., Class A, Class B and the passenger (P) and school bus (S) endorsements). The proficient completion of the BTW portions of the various curricula is based solely on the training instructor’s assessment of each driver trainee’s individual performance of the required elements of BTW training on the range and public road. All BTW training must be conducted in a representative vehicle for the commercial driver’s license (CDL) class or endorsement being sought.
