Utah Man Charged With Making False Statements Related to CDL Driver Skill Testing
On March 14, 2017, Antonio Estuardo Tinti was charged by information in U.S. District Court, Salt Lake City, Utah for making a false statement related to the administration of a commercial driver’s license (CDL) test.
In March 2013, Tinti administered a CDL driving skills test to Gregorio Bozas and falsely certified that Bozas had successfully completed the road test in compliance with State and Federal testing standards. Tinti gave Bozas a passing score on the CDL driving test, even though he knew Bozas did not pass. During the test, Bozas drove over multiple curbs, which is an automatic road-test failure; however, Tinti accepted a $150 bribe for a passing scoresheet
DOT-OIG conducted this investigation with Utah Department of Public Safety.
