Entry-Level Driving Training

FMCSA training rules came into effect from February 7, 2022, for all the aspiring trainee students who want to obtain Class A CDL or CLASS B CDL or upgrade a CDL or wish to obtain a Passenger (P), School Bus (S), or hazardous materials (H) endorsement. The instructions delivered also simultaneously vary according to the updated modules of the new Entry-Level Driving Training certification process.

In case of hazardous material endorsement, the driver must take prior theory training and knowledge tests for the H endorsement. The training must be listed on FMCSA's Trainer Provider Registry (TPR). The state driver legislative Agency (SLDA) must verify beforehand that an entry-level driver has the requisite training by cross-verifying information stored in the Training Provider Registry. Therefore, any school, employer, union, or individual providing training must register and check the program with the FMCSA and self-certify that all the ELDT requirements as mentioned in the training curricula outlined in section 49 CFR Part 380 appendices A through E concerned with the federal, state and local laws.


Class A CDL Training in California

You must complete a CDL training program in order to earn a Class A CDL license. Enrolling in one of the training programs will enhance your morale and will dispatch you the relevant skills needed to operate a commercial vehicle. States can only offer you a CDL driver's license once you have passed a written and driving test from a recognized testing facility. A minimum of 180 hours of combined classroom and behind-the-wheel instructions for driving a truck is required to obtain a CLASS A license.


Punjab truck driving school provides high-quality CDL class A training in California. We teach you everything needed to obtain a commercial driver's license.

For two reasons, it's critical to prepare for your CDL A exam:

  •  Without the correct instruction, passing the test might be exceedingly tough.
  • Even if you pass the CDL A test, many carriers will not hire you until you have completed at least 180 hours of suitable training.


The length of time it takes to complete your Class A CDL training in California is determined by the program you select and the type of commercial driver's license you need.

The majority of programs span three to seven weeks, however, due to the requirement of in-depth training, Class A programs are more comprehensive and take longer.
