LITTLE ROCK (TBP) — Arkansas State Police and Arkansas Trucking Association are working together to speed up the licensing process for commercial truck drivers.

Chris Spears, ATA President and CEO, stated, “This is truly an earn-while-you-learn program. But it’s more than just a paycheck for apprentices: by participating in a registered program, they are eligible for things like child care, housing allowances, and other support as they start down this new career path.”
