Albany to get CDL center

May 24, 2005

Albany - A proposed plan will make it easy to get a commercial driver's license.

The DMVS wants Dougherty County to allow them to build a commercial driver's license testing site on county owned land on Oakridge Drive.

County commissioners like the idea. "To have that commercial driving school in southwest Georgia will bring about 1,500 trucks driver's to Dougherty County annually," said County Commission Chairman Jeff Sinyard. "They can only test six a day. Knowing that they're here, spending their money in our community and coming to the capital of southwest Georgia is very important."

The county would lease the DMVS the land for a nominal fee, and the DMVS would pay to pave the testing course and operate the facility.
