New Entry-Level Driver Training Program

As of February 7, 2022, drivers applying for an initial CDL, upgrading a current CDL, or obtaining a hazardous materials, passenger, or school bus endorsement will need to complete entry-level driver training.

This training includes both theory and behind-the-wheel instruction, with the instruction provided by an entity listed on a Training Provider Registry (TPR), administered by FMCSA.

Fulfill the new training requirements with J. J. Keller's Entry-Level Driver Training: Obtaining a CDL. The training complies with FMCSA's training rule and features student and trainer manuals.
