Current State of the CDL Industry

The US truck driving industry is severely under capacity. With the average age of a professional truck driver steadily increasing, a significant number of drivers will be retiring and further exacerbating the industry shortage. In addition, new ELDT regulations are changing the needs of organizations and causing companies to rethink traditional training options. 


New Training Regulations

New and more stringent regulations were implemented in 2022 for Entry Level Driver Training (ELDT). It is now required for any individual who wants to: 

  • Obtain a Commercial Driver's License (CDL),

  • Upgrade an existing Class B CDL, and/or

  • Add any additional endorsements,

to complete a prescribed program of theory and behind-the-wheel instruction before taking the CDL skills test. This training must be provided by a school or other entity listed on the FMCSA's Training Provider Registry (TPR). 


Current Available Training Options:  

Companies today have three general options for how to train their drivers:

  • Inside the Organization using their own TPR-compliant professionals

  • Utilizing a traditional off-site CDL School

  • DLTS (Diversified Logistics Training Solutions)

    • Training on your equipment, at your location, on your schedule.


Our experience shows that when companies train their own employees as a way of advancing their careers, retention and loyalty dramatically increase. This is key for building sustainable driving teams that meet your growing needs and demands.  We highly recommend you utilize advancement of your proven employees to fill your driver demand.
