Do you have current employees or new hires that must obtain a CDL for your company?

With the implementation of the FMCSA’s new ELDT mandated training requirements, employers are finding that many of their long-term employees and new hires require CDL licensing in accordance with these new rules, and are discovering just how expensive traditional CDL training can be.  We can help with that!

The ELDT Academy Difference...

ELDT Academy, LLC is an FMCSA approved, and a FLHSMV Licensed and Certified Training Provider. Whether it is a Class A, Class B, or Class C CDL, we utilize FMCSA-approved curriculum, and we offer innovative solutions that can be customized to YOUR company’s needs through our proven programs in Contract Training. Our curriculum is designed for truck drivers in the real world. We care about your training, and we take it seriously.

Contract Training: We come to YOU!

This model of training requires the following:

Use of YOUR company vehicle, which must be road worthy and have passed an FMCSA Annual Inspection, current registration, and General Liability Insurance.

Have an adequate training area (minimum approximately 300′ x 100′), that is flat and preferably paved.

Have a minimum of two (2), but not exceed four (4) CDL Candidates, per Instructor.


And our process is proven to work!

What's the process?

* We conduct a site visit to verify adequate and safe training space is present.

* We establish a custom road training route.

* We establish your individual training needs, and develop a training plan.

* We establish your student roster and get them permit-ready through our online Learning Management System (LMS).

*In-person theory training can also be arranged.

* Once your CDL Candidates have completed the permitting process, we commence training.

* Once your CDL Candidates are deemed proficient by our instructor, we upload their passing scores to the FMCSA, and help schedule state testing with a third-party examiner in your area.

How can we offer this option?

Simple… no major overhead! We don’t have excessive expenses typical of traditional brick and mortar schools such as building rent and utilities, fleet purchase/lease and maintenance, fuel, or any of the operating costs of a traditional CDL school, and which are ultimately passed on to you.

We work within our network of contracted Certified Instructors and send them to your location, while your employees remain at their home terminal. All training is conducted on your property and using your equipment.
