Third-party testing allows companies outside the state’s licensing system, such as driving schools or trucking companies, to test their students or employees and certify them for commercial driver’s licenses.
Brad Barber, GDA Campus President, said “I applaud Commissioner Moore and his CDL staff for the initiative to implement the Third-Party Tester Pilot Program with Georgia Truck Driver Training Schools. This is a Win-Win-Win Program, for the DDS, CDL Training Schools and most importantly our GA students. The Covid-19 Pandemic has shown everyone in America the importance of truck drivers. With over 70% of all goods being delivered by trucks, there is a critical need to keep our trucks rolling. The Third-Party Tester Pilot Program is allowing our students to enter the job market quicker and to fill that empty driver’s seat.”
