CDL Training Providers: Register and Submit Records
Follow the steps below to ensure your provider appears in the Training Provider Registry, and can electronically submit driver training certification records as required by the ELDT regulations.
Create a Login.gov Account
Training providers will use a Login.gov username (email address) and password to access the Training Provider Registry. Providers may create a new account or use an existing Login.gov account. Learn more about Login.gov.
Register Training Provider
Select one person to register your company or organization with FMCSA. Once approved, this user may invite other individuals to register and work in the Registry on behalf of the training provider.
Register Training Locations
Once FMCSA approves the company’s registration request, providers can log in to register training locations. Providers with multiple locations will need to register each location.
Submit Training Certification
Registered providers must log in to their Training Provider Portal and submit the training certification record by midnight of the second business day after the driver completes training. Download the instructions
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.

Why do I need to receive a security code?
Login.gov uses two factors to authenticate that you are who you say you are. To do this, you will need to provide a way for Login.gov to send you a one-time security code. This can be done over SMS (text message) or a phone call, or using an authorization application. Backup codes are also available but should only be used if you have no other options, as they can only be used a limited number of times.
