Courtesy of ATA

Last month, FMCSA unveiled the new Training Provider Registry (TPR) webpage, which contains information to help training providers prepare for the February 7, 2022 implementation of the Entry-Level Driving Training (ELDT) rule. The TPR contains information on eligibility, tips to help providers prepare for the Registry to open this summer, and a comprehensive ELDT Checklist and curricula overview. Once the online interface is fully in place, the TPR will allow training providers to self-certify they meet the training requirements and store ELDT certification information and transmit it to the State Driver Licensing Agencies.
