phone Call Us:
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has established minimum training standards for individuals upgrading their Class B commercial driver's license (CDL-B) to a Class A commercial driver's license (CDL-A). These individuals are subject to the entry-level driver training (ELDT) requirements. This Class B to A CDL course was created in collaboration with an approved training provider listed on FMCSA's Training Provider Registry (TPR).
This CDL license training course is designed for commercial motor vehicle drivers who currently hold a Class B CDL and are seeking to upgrade to a Class A CDL. The Class A CDL is generally required to operate heavier vehicles with a combination of truck and trailer, such as a tractor-trailer, whereas a Class B CDL generally authorizes the driver to operate heavier straight trucks.
Throughout this online ELDT theory course, you will learn how to meet all theory (knowledge) requirements listed in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 49 CFR Part 380, Special Training Requirements. It includes sections covering basic operation, safe operating procedures, advanced operating practices, vehicle systems and reporting malfunctions, and non-driving activities.
Upon completion of this course, your completion record will be uploaded to the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) TPR. You can take your state's CDL test upon completing other federal training requirements, such as behind-the-wheel training. Those who successfully take the CDL test will be issued a state CDL and may be eligible to be hired by companies that operate Class A trucks in commerce.
Note: There are no refunds or transfers for this course. This course is excluded from ed2go standard refund and transfer policies. Once access to the course is provided, no refunds or transfers will be allowed.

What is the refund and transfer policy for this ELDT training course?
This course does not fall under the ed2go standard refund or transfer policies. Once access to the course is provided, no refunds or transfers will be allowed.
What are the CDL permit classes?
Obtaining a commercial learner's permit (CLP) is the first step toward earning a commercial driver's license (CDL): Class A, Class B, or Class C. A CLP authorizes you to practice driving a commercial motor vehicle with a qualified CDL holder sitting next to you. Once you possess your CLP for 14 days and complete applicable entry-level driver training, you are eligible to take the CDL skills test.
What is the difference between a Class A and Class B CDL?
Class A licenses are considered the "universal" CDL, allowing drivers to operate multiple types of commercial trucks and tractor trailers. A Class B license also allows you to drive different types of vehicles, such as straight trucks and dump trucks, but it is more limiting than a Class A CDL. The differences between the two CDLs relate to the types and weight of the vehicles, particularly the load that the vehicles will tow.

What kind of support will I receive?
Our courses are designed to accommodate various learning preferences. Depending on the course structure, you may get different forms of support. Self-paced courses are designed to be user-friendly and independent, minimizing the need for external support. In courses with instructors, our direct platform support feature includes opportunities for questions, discussions, and remediation, with email and phone support available for select courses. Our student advising team is available to guide you on program requirements and administrative requests, but they do not provide assistance with course content. Our goal is to provide you with the necessary support for success, whether it's through self-paced exploration, direct communication, or guidance from our advising team.

Am I guaranteed a job?
ed2go courses will help you gain the skills you need to obtain an entry-level position in most cases. However, you should always research the job market in your area before enrolling.
Can I get financial assistance?
ed2go courses are non-credit, so they do not qualify for federal aid, FAFSA, and Pell Grant. In some states, vocational rehab or workforce development boards may provide funding to take our courses. Additionally, you may qualify for financial assistance if you meet certain requirements. Learn more about financial assistance.
