Welcome to TDA
Mission and Objective
"We are the difference between DMV ready and Industry ready."
On February 7, 2022, the FMCSA changed its rules regarding ELDT (Entry Level Driver Training) requiring a specific curriculum and Training Providers to register with the FMCSA now provides a Training Provider Registry Number and monitors the training, and sets standards for training guidelines. This is a call to many trainers who cut corners to get individuals their Commercial Drivers License by passing them at the DMV but never actually getting them to industry-standard requirements to drive safely and competently. Our mission at TDA is the difference between "DMV" ready and "Industry" ready.
