Arkansas Officials Questioning Validity of Trucking Permits from Southeast Missouri Schools

APRIL 27, 2006 - Posted at 8:23 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Arkansas' driver's license office will hold hearings for eleven truckers to determine whether they should surrender their permits after possibly being improperly tested at a Missouri school.

Most of the eleven are among 2,600 nationwide who were trained and perhaps improperly tested by truck-driving schools in West Plains and Sikeston, Missouri.  The state office says hearings will likely be held in May.

Missouri officials said this week they would seek new tests for drivers they licensed after training and testing at the schools.

Many states use third-party examiners to test truck drivers.  In Arkansas, state police officers give written exams to potential truck drivers but third parties are certified to give the driving tests.
