DOT/FMCSA RIN: 2126-AC05 Publication ID: Fall 2017 
Title: ●ELDT; Class B to Class A CDL Upgrade 

As part of its ongoing regulatory reform efforts, FMCSA proposes to revise its December 8, 2016, final rule establishing minimum entry-level driver training (ELDT) requirements by reducing the Class A theory training requirements for Class B commercial driver's license (CDL) holders upgrading to a Class A CDL. Consistent with the ELDT final rule, this proposed theory training upgrade curriculum for Class B CDL holders would not have a required minimum number of instruction hours, but the training provider must cover all topics in the curriculum and driver-trainees must receive an overall minimum score of 80 percent on the theory assessment. This NPRM does not propose any changes to behind-the-wheel training requirements set forth in the ELDT final rule.
