Frequently Asked Questions

The Entry Level Driver Training (ELDT) rule requires that anyone who wants to get a Class A or B, upgrade from a B to an A, or get a Hazmat Endorsement, must complete an approved truck driver training program.

Anyone who wants to get a Class A or Class B CDL in any state must complete an approved ELDT program. Some endorsements also require ELDT training.

ProDriverU training is approved in all states within the U.S., except for Hazmat in Washington state.

The course is self-paced, and users are provided up to 90 days to complete the course.

When you successfully complete the course, you will be issued a Certificate of Completion for your records. ProDriverU will also send notice of completion to the FMCSA Training Provider Registry (TPR).

To access your certificate, login to ProDriverU. Go to My Courses and select Transcripts from the dropdown menu. Once you open your transcript, you will see an award icon under Certificates. Click on the award icon and your certificate will open.

Theory training is like classroom training. It provides the knowledge to safely drive a truck. The behind the wheel (BTW), or driving skills training, is hands-on instruction in a truck. Theory is knowledge-based, whereas driving is skills-based. ProDriverU covers only the ELDT theory training.

You must complete the ELDT program for an upgrade. The training requirements for an upgrade are somewhat reduced compared to the Class A training required.

There is no hourly requirement for ELDT. There are theory (knowledge) training requirements and behind the wheel (driving skill) proficiency requirements, but neither requires a specific amount of time. ProDriverU only covers the theory requirements for ELDT.
