DOT certified examiners will be available on all three days of the show to perform the exams at greatly reduced rates. Final price is still to be determined but right now looks to be $55-$65.
This years’ Great American Trucking Show will be held at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center on August 25-27, 2016.

We hope to see you there.
