In February of 2022, new ELDT regulations set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) went into effect. This new mandate is a set of minimum requirements for entry-level drivers who are obtaining a CDL for the first time, or upgrading an existing CDL. These regulations are set at the federal level, and all CDL drivers (existing and potential) and training providers must abide by them. Even though it seems like more hurdles to jump, these standards were designed to make our highways safer. Further preparation and training for CDL drivers means less accidents on the road.
