Beginning February 7, 2022, in compliance with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA’s) Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT) rule, any individual trying to obtain their Commercial Drivers License (CDL) for the first time, must successfully complete an approved program of theory and behind-the-wheel instruction before they can take their CDL skills test. This training program must be approved by the FMCSA, and listed on their Training Provider Registry (TPR).
Finding an FMCSA approved training provider near you may prove to be difficult for a while as training providers develop programs to meet these requirements, and providers currently meeting requirements may be overwhelmed by demand. Luckily, there are a handful of online options being offered by providers like ProDriverU.
ProDriverU is an Entry Level Driver Training (ELDT) online learning platform, already an approved Training Provider on the TPR. It’s designed to provide everything a student driver will need to manage their ELDT theory training and certification process, from start to finish.
Students will learn all of the required 30 plus theory topics, take tests, see their scores and monitor their progress in real-time. The best part is that it can be done at your own pace, from anywhere. ProDriverU is easily accessible with an internet connection from any mobile phone, tablet, laptop or desktop.
Work at your own pace using “bite-size” learning modules. ProDriverU training is fast, focused and effective utilizing lots of visuals, videos and diagrams, not just text.
Test as you go, checking off topics one at a time until you achieve the required 80% score. If you don’t pass a quiz on a specific topic, you are able to retest as many times as you need until you do.
Once you are done with the program, a certificate will be awarded to you, and ProDriverU will report your required theory completion to the FMCSA TPR directly.
ProDriverU is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can save you thousands of dollars not spent enrolling in a classroom.
