Frequently Asked Questions ?

Fake field to collapse all initially

YOU BET IT IS!!! The cost depends on how long of training you want/need.  We find that most businesses like to train their own drivers (which we completely agree with), therefore their drivers don’t need extended training to be able to pass the CDL skills test and meet the FMCSA’s ELDT training requirments (don’t you love how many acronyms are in our industry. ) 1-2 days of training is usually all it takes for most applicants to have the skills to pass the ELDT requirements and the skills test, as long as you take time to train your drivers within your business before they get to us. If you don’t want to train them then we recommend 1 week. That is usually enough time because we only put 1-2 students with each instructor to ensure maximum content retention with direct assitance and attention from the instructor.Please reach out for more specific pricing.

They need their CDL Permit in hand for a minimum of 14 days, we will have an online portion that covers the “in-class” portion of the training that is required by the ELDT mandate. And we highly recommend that you ensure they are proficient at driving your vehicles with in-house training – Which will save will not only save you time but $$$ as well! 

Both. Our in-class will be internet-based and on-demand so drivers can access it at their convince. On-the-road training is done behind the wheel!

We have vehicles available. With that being said, your cost lowers if you provide a vehicle for the training. So really, it’s your choice if you provide a vehicle or not. Either way, here at Eclipse DOT we have you covered!
