RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) -
COVID 19 revealed a number of shortages -- from toilet paper to truck drivers.
In fact... the American Trucking Association estimated that in 2021 the truck driver shortage hit a historic high of
more than 80,000 drivers. And this weekend, the state of South Dakota is trying to fill some of those positions.
Saturday, the state is sponsoring a number of Commercial Drivers License testing sites....including one in Rapid City. The testing is available to help those who are
interested in getting a CDL before the new federal entry-level requirements change next month. Drivers who earn their CDL before February 7, will be exempt from
the new regulations.
