Why HVMC Transportation ELDT Training

HVMC Transportation ELDT Training is provided by instructors who combined have in excess of 70 years of Local, Regional, and OTR driving experience.  Having driven in all seasons, every state in the Continental United States, and Canada you can be assured that the education you will receive here will not only meet the FMCSA standard but exceed it.

This is not a job this is a career.  You must decide if starting out with online training or training from individuals who are only qualified because they have a CDL but lack the real-world experience is what you want to base your new career on.  This is not a light decision, your life, the lives of others on the road, and your livelihood depend on this choice.

Our ELDT Theory training consists of 40 hours of onsite instruction that is both classroom and hands on!  You will not just read the required information, you will experience it.  You will learn from an operational Motor Carrier and from people who do the job every day!
