On November 8, 2012 the Governor's Office of Workforce Development (GOWD), in partnership with the Georgia Department of Labor launched several statewide workforce development initiatives aimed to aid Georgia’s returning veterans.
The Department of Driver Services joined this initiative by partnering with GOWD to expedite the entry of veterans into civilian employment through the transportation industry. The pilot program is focused on accelerating the Commercial Driver's License (CDL) process for military personnel at Fort Benning. DDS Centers accommodate military personnel with after-hours service and allow them to select DDS centers for testing and issuance of CDL. The DDS center in Midland, Muscogee County, Georgia is open Mondays, typically a closed day, for active duty military, veterans, Guard and Reserve.
"It is fitting that this program in Midland begins on Veterans Day," said DDS Commissioner Rob Mikell. "DDS is proud to assist this exceptionally-talented group of men and women as they complete the requirements to enter the trucking industry," he added. DDS will continue the Troops to Trucks Program in Midland each Monday through June 2013.
