On April 14th, Don Lefeve (CVTA), Bob Schauer (Western Pacific Truck School) and Roger Smith (American Truck Schools), testified before the California Senate Transportation and Housing Committee on Senate Bill 344. Senate Bill 344 is a bill that would create driver training standards in California and close the “CDL mill loophole.” While CVTA is supportive of the goals of this legislation, Don, Bob, and Roger spoke about amending this legislation to expand skills testing to allow third party testers to help reduce the severe skills testing backlog in California. Current wait times are between 30-60 days currently. Retest times are the near the same time.
