Rome will be one of three Georgia Department of Driver Services locations in North Georgia which will offer commercial vehicle road tests through a partnership with Floyd County.
This week the Rome location at 3390 Martha Berry Highway joins 10 other DDS service centers throughout the state which now offer the test.
"DDS understands that many of our customers rely on CDL licenses for their livelihood, and it is a vital component of Georgia's commerce," said DDS Commissioner Spencer R. Moore. "We remain customer service focused and are grateful for the help and support that we have received from Floyd County."
"The new testing site here in Floyd County will benefit our residents as well as our commercial businesses that depend on CDL drivers," said Floyd County Manager Jamie Mc- Cord.
Georgia licenses over 340,000 commercial vehicle drivers annually who play a critical role in the economy.
Job opportunities for CDL holders are on the rise, a press release stated. Adding more testing locations, expanding CDL online services and developing a DDS Mobile Services App, DDS 2 Go, are ways the agency continues to meet the increase in demand, the press release stated.
The agency has already begun booking CDL road test appointments. There are also 17 third party CDL testing sites that are state certified for testing along with the DDS locations.
