Starting February 7th, 2022, the new Entry Level Driver Training rules are officially in effect.
First and foremost, the rule is NOT retroactive. If a driver currently holds a permit (prior to 2/7/2022) or CDL, and/or has a Passenger, School Bus, or Hazmat endorsement they are exempt from this rule.
The mandate and training requirements must be met by every new driver applying for their CDL. It is important for trucking professionals to understand how this will impact the industry.
For a new driver applying for their CDL, they must find and complete a training program from an approved provider. To find a provider, check out the FMCSA’s Training Provider Registry (TPR).
