CDL Examiner Pleads Guilty to Falsifying 248 Licenses
Neal Conaway, an independent third-party CDL examiner pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Cincinnati, OH to fraudulently representing to the State of Ohio that he had properly tested 248 CDL applications. Conaway gave the applicants an abbreviated test consisting of a group pre-trip inspection of the truck and a short road test. A normal pre-trip inspection and road test takes nearly an hour to complete; Conaway’s applicants completed their test in about 10 minutes. The drivers have been notified that they will need to take a new CDL examination. OIG investigated this case with the Ohio State Police.
