ABC of Alabama Responds to CDL Concerns

ABC of Alabama Responds to CDL Concerns

During the January board meeting for ABC of Alabama, both the East Alabama and West Alabama representatives on the board expressed concerns over the commercial drivers' license process in the state.

 The actual written portion of the test is done online, but to complete the licensing process, one must participate in a hands-on driving examination. Apparently in some sections of the state, getting that scheduled while meeting construction deadlines and making accommodations for individuals to be away from work has become complicated. ABC of Alabama is proud to announce that it is launching an  alliance with the Alabama Department of Public Safety to address this concern. ABC of Alabama President Jay Reed said members could expect the association to offer training onsite in most of its regions that is more
accommodating than the traditional calendar available online through the Department of Public Safety.

ABC of Alabama applauds Major Deena Pregno with the Department of Public Safety for responding to the industry’s needs. Once the memorandum of understanding is completed and signed by both the association and the Department of Public Safety, those calendar dates will be made available. ABC of Alabama is pleased to offer this value to its membership and is happy to respond to the needs of the industry.
