DOT/FMCSA RIN: 2126-AC05 Publication ID: Fall 2018 
Title: ELDT; Class B to Class A CDL Upgrade 
Abstract:

FMCSA proposes to amend the entry-level driver training (ELDT) regulations published on December 8, 2016, titled "Minimum Training Requirements for Entry-Level Commercial Motor Vehicle Operators" by adopting a new Class A theory instruction upgrade curriculum to reduce the training time and costs incurred by Class B commercial driver's license (CDL) holders upgrading to a Class A CDL. This NPRM does not propose any changes to behind-the-wheel training (BTW) requirements set forth in the ELDT final rule. This proposal would be a deregulatory action as defined by Executive Order 13771, Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs. The Agency believes that this modest change in the Class A theory training requirements for Class B CDL holders upgrading to a Class A CDL would maintain the same level of safety established by the ELDT final rule.
