Entry-Level Driver Training Consulting

Stay Ahead of Proposed ELDT Changes

Whether you provide entry-level driver training (ELDT), or hire from schools who do, you need to stay on top of the latest rule changes proposed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The new Entry-Level Driver Training rules, which are slated to go live February 2020, add quite a few requirements on both schools and fleets.
