Complete Driver Eligibility & Document Upload

IFDA requires the submission of two documents to complete a driver's eligibility for the competition: 

  1. Driver's DMV Report 
  2. Driver's CDL 

If you have some or all of your driver's document(s), then search and click the driver's name to upload those documents.   This will take you to their TDC Driver Details page and you will need to do this for each of the drivers that you register.  If you don't have all the driver's documents at this time, you can return later to complete them but they must be uploaded and submitted prior to September 15th to complete their eligibility for competition.  

After uploading your driver's documents, clicking on the TDC truck will back to the TDC registration site and you can add additional drivers, registrants or guests.  Once you have all of your driver documents uploaded, you can proceed to checkout to complete your registration(s).
