Our company has always been committed to making sure that the safest and most professional drivers make it to Indiana's roadways, so the name just kind of fell into place
Indianapolis, IN (Vocus) January 3, 2008
ProSafe CDL, a third-party CDL skills testing site licensed by the state of Indiana, announced today it will begin operating under its new name. The company formerly operated as a separate division of Indianapolis-based C1 Truck Driver Training. Due to massive growth and increased regulation of the CDL testing market, ProSafe decided to branch out and create its own business identity.
"Beginning in the next several years, Indiana state law will require all CDL testing sites to be their own agency, independent of any CDL training school," said ProSafe President Mark McAtee. "We went ahead and became our own company now. Hopefully by being the first to do so, we?ll become a model for other testing sites when they change over in the future."
Besides becoming an independent agency, ProSafe CDL has prided itself in licensing only safe, fully-prepared drivers that pass their CDL skills test. When the company began separating from C1, employees wanted a company name that would represent their dedication to upholding the highest standards in CDL testing.
"Our company has always been committed to making sure that the safest and most professional drivers make it to Indiana's roadways, so the name just kind of fell into place," McAtee said. "The name ProSafe really represents our philosophy here."
ProSafe CDL was founded in 1990 and functions as an independent third-party testing site for the CDL skills test in the state of Indiana. The company currently operates from four locations: Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Valparaiso, and Wabash. ProSafe tests students from CDL training schools as well as the general public and also provides customized CDL training courses. Prior to becoming an independent entity, ProSafe CDL operated as a separate division under the C1 Truck Driver Training name.
C1 Truck Driver Training was formed in 1987 and has developed into the industry leader in CDL training. C1 specializes in training entry-level truck drivers to earn their CDL and understand the skills and knowledge necessary to operate a tractor trailer.C1 Truck Driver Training is headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, and operates four other training centers throughout the Midwest. C1 Truck Driver Training is a member of the Driver Solutions network, a career management company for entry-level truck drivers.
