Providing ELDT? Registration is Required.

Why do training providers need to register?

Providers must register with FMCSA and self-certify they meet applicable Federal and State training requirements. Registering your company and location(s) is necessary to appear in the Training Provider Registry and to submit driver training certification information as required by the ELDT regulations. States must verify that certification information has been submitted to the Registry before allowing the driver to take the required CDL skills or knowledge test.

Only training providers register in the Training Provider Registry.

Read below for more information on the ELDT requirements training providers must meet to be eligible to register with FMCSA.
