Interactive, Online Courses To Meet Your ELDT Training Requirements

In 2022, the FMCSA enacted new entry-level driver training requirements. ELDT training curriculum is designed to ensure all commercial drivers receive uniform instruction–no matter where they are in the country.

New drivers, those looking to upgrade their license, or individuals who are pursuing certain endorsements will be required to take an ELDT theory course. This is often the first step to getting your license or endorsement.

CDL Truck Services is an FMCSA-approved ELDT training provider. Our courses are designed to help you pass your written exams quickly–and you can study from anywhere.

About The Class B To Class A Theory

The Class B to Class A Upgrade course has been designed to simplify the process of upgrading your Class B CDL to a Class A CDL. This course will complete all of your ELDT requirements for your upgrade.

The course covers the maintenance and operation of a Class A commercial vehicle, with anything you may have already learned from your Class B FMCSA entry-level driver training course omitted.

This course will meet all FMCSA requirements for ELDT training to upgrade your license.

Course Contents

A lot of the Class B to Class A Upgrade coursework is going to be very similar to your Class B ELDT training. Pay close attention, though. There are differences and you may be tested on them.

  • This unit of the course covers everything you need to know about operating a Class A commercial vehicle.

    It includes information about basic maneuvering, the control panel/dashboard, and how to couple and uncouple trailers from the truck.

  • This section of the course will teach you everything you need to know about the legally-required safe operating procedures a Class A commercial driver is required to follow.

    It will teach you about speed and space management, operating your truck at night, and how to be safe during the most extreme weather conditions.

  • This section of the course will teach you the advanced practices for safe driving, including how to recover from a dangerous driving situation.

    how to control and recover from skids, what to do if you jackknife, and how to find and avoid hazards on the road.

  • This section of the program will help you understand when your vehicle is malfunctioning and what to look for when you think it isn’t performing well.

  • This is the section where most of the information overlapped with your Class B ELDT training course. It goes over fatigue and wellness and your hours of service requirements.

After Completing FMCSA Entry Level Driver Training

After you’ve completed your upgrade course, you may still be required to complete BTW training and complete your road test…

But CDL Truck Services is there to help you ever step of the way.
