| 6/16/2003

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Office of Inspector General announced that Grady Saffles, a CDL tester for America’s Driving Force in Forest Park, GA, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Atlanta for falsifying CDL test results.

Saffles’ actions enabled 26 CDL applicants who did not take the skills portion of the test to become licensed.

Saffles was sentenced to six months’ home confinement, five years’ probation and 200 hours of community service. The sentence resulted from a joint investigation with the Georgia Department of Motor Vehicle Safety and assistance from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
