Entry-level drivers training

December 17,2021- Effective February 7, 2022, individuals seeking a commercial driver license in the State of Missouri will be required to complete theory and/or behind-the-wheel training as described in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) Part 380, Appendix A. This requirement applies to CDL applicants:

  • Obtaining a Class A or B CDL for the first time; or

  • Upgrading an existing Class B CDL to a Class A CDL; or

  • Obtaining a school bus (S), passenger (P), or hazardous materials (H) endorsement for the first

  • time.

The ELDT regulations are not retroactive. Individuals holding a valid CDL, an unexpired commercial

learner's permit (CLP), or an S, P, or H endorsement issued prior to February 7, 2022 are not required to

take the respective training for that license or endorsement. Individuals exempted by their State from CDL or testing requirements are also exempt from the ELDT requirements.

CDL applicants will be required to select a training provider listed on the Training Provider Registry

website at to complete their required entry-level driver training. Only training

providers that have registered with and been approved by FMCSA will appear on this list. When

registering, training providers will be required to self-certify that they meet all the Federal requirements in

the ELDT regulations, as well as any applicable State requirements.

If you or your members have questions about this or any other regulations within our purview, please

contact State Programs Specialist Christopher Luebbert at 573-636-1029, and he will be happy to

discuss with you or your members at your convenience.
