§380.605 – Definitions Guidance Q&A Question 5: Can States impose more stringent standards than those established by the entry-level driver training (ELDT) regulations?

Question 5: Can States impose more stringent standards than those established by the entry-level driver training (ELDT) regulations?

 

Guidance: Yes. The regulations generally do not replace or otherwise supersede State ELDT requirements that exceed these minimum Federal standards when an entry-level driver obtains training in that State. Whether additional State ELDT-related requirements apply to the applicant will be determined by where he or she obtains their behind-the-wheel (BTW) and/or theory training for the Class A or Class B commercial driver’s license (CDL) and/or the passenger (P), school bus (S), or hazardous materials (H) endorsements.
