Class A CDL Online Entry Level Driver Training

As of February 2022, the Department of Transportation (DOT) requires that anyone seeking a Class A Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) in any state must complete an Entry Level Driver Training course that meets minimum standards.

Our Class A Online ELDT Course provides this federally mandated requirement in a self-paced, enjoyable format that can be accessed anywhere, on any device, with an internet connection.

Upon completion CDL Nationwide will submit proof of your course completion to FMCSA, then you can take the ELDT behind-the-wheel training from an approved provider.

Who Needs a Class A CDL?

The federal standard CDL classification, combined with the cargo being transported, determines what type of CDL license a driver must apply for. Any combination of vehicles with gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 26,001 pounds or more falls in Group A, provided the GVWR of the vehicle (trailer) being towed are in excess of 10,000 pounds.

This includes most large combination vehicles (truck & trailer) such as:
Tractor-trailers (also known as Semi, Big Rig or 18-wheeler)
Truck and trailer combinations
Fuel tankers
Livestock carriers

NOTE: Class A vehicles require tremendous skill and knowledge, included in Class B and C vehicles, so a driver with a Class A license may also drive vehicles in Classes B and C, depending on endorsement requirements.
