Commercial Driver License Office Locations

Beginning Feb. 7, 2022, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) will require new CDL applicants and those seeking to upgrade their CDL to receive training from a certified organization on the national registry of Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT) providers. ELDT training includes curriculum in three areas: theory, range and road. To process and issue a CDL, the Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division will need to validate that an applicant has completed this training.

This requirement impacts drivers attempting to:

  • Obtain a Class A or Class B commercial driver’s license (CDL) for the first time.
  • Upgrade an existing Class B CDL to a Class A CDL.
  • Obtain a school bus (S), passenger (P), or hazardous materials (H) endorsement for the first time.

When FMCSA makes available list of training providers, MVD will provide a link to it. In the meantime, visit FMCSA’s Training Provider Registry page for more information.

The ELDT regulations are not retroactive and do not apply to individuals holding a valid CDL or an S, P or H endorsement issued prior to February 7, 2022.

FMCSA has not yet released its list of training providers. When it’s available, ADOT MVD will provide a link to it on this webpage.

If your organization or business currently trains its drivers and is interested in becoming a certified training provider on the national registry, visit tpr.fmcas.dot.gov for more information and to register as a provider.

If you're an Arizona CDL holder and want to verify your medical certificate, you can do that by going to AZMVDNow.gov.

Knowledge and Skills Testing is conducted by appointment only.  CDL services other than knowledge tests can be conducted over the phone.  Knowledge tests require a minimum score of 80 percent to pass the exam.  Applicants are required to wait until the next business day to retake any tests.  Commercial permits and endorsement tests will be scheduled no later than 3:00 PM.  For information or to set an appointment, please call 602.255.0072.
