The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, May 5, starting at 11:00 a.m. to review the new Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) standards for mandatory Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT).
The regulations (49 CFR Part 380) set a national baseline for entry-level driver training to improve the safety of our roads and highways across the Commonwealth and our nation.
Beginning February 7, 2022, new federal requirements will impact drivers applying to:
- Obtain a Class A or Class B commercial driver’s license (CDL) for the first time
- Upgrade to a Class B CDL or to a Class A CDL
- Obtain a school bus (S), passenger (P), or hazardous materials (H) endorsement for the first time
Importance of Training
The RMV values the essential role training providers play in ensuring entry-level drivers are equipped with the knowledge to safely operate commercial motor vehicles (CMVs). The ELDT regulations establish requirements that training providers, states, and entry-level drivers must meet.
Go to the FMCSA ELDT website for more information about the new training requirements.
The webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, May 5, 2021. Please register for this webinar to learn more about the new regulations and how they will affect training providers.
Registration is required to participate in the webinar.
