CDL Training Requirements 2022

ELDT What?

Obtaining a CDL (Commercial Driver’s License) has historically been a straightforward process: study the handbook, pass the written test, get the permit, learn the ropes, pass the driving test, and voila, you have your CDL.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) defines entry-level drivers as those applying for their first Class A or Class B CDL, upgrading from Class B to Class A, or obtaining endorsements like school bus (S), passenger (P), or hazardous materials (H).

Despite this, there’s good news. Eclipse-DOT is committed to offering training and CDL testing at affordable rates, even under the new requirements.
