CDL tester pleads guilty to falsifying results

| 3/14/2003

Grady D. Saffles, a commercial driver’s license tester for America’s Driving Force in Forest Park, GA, pleaded guilty recently in U.S. District Court in Atlanta to falsifying CDL test results.

The falsification resulted in the licensing of 26 CDL applicants who did not take the skills portion of the test. America’s Driving Force was not aware of the fraud.

Saffles’ sentencing is scheduled for May 28. The case is part of an ongoing investigation into CDL fraud in Georgia that the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Office of the Inspector General is conducting jointly with the Georgia Department of Motor Vehicle Safety, with assistance from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
