SALEM – Oregon DMV is looking for new skills test providers for commercial driver licensing across the state.

DMV encourages businesses and organizations that can provide CDL skills tests to apply with the Oregon Department of Transportation for the CDL Third Party Testing Program.

Once ODOT awards providers with a contract in this program, they will be authorized to administer CDL skills tests on behalf of DMV.

In the next few months, DMV will post a Request for Proposal (RFP) for these services on the Oregon Procurement Information Network (ORPIN). Any entities wishing to submit a proposal response must be registered on ORPIN in order to do so. Registration is free.

If you are interested and want to find out if you are qualified, the applicable federal regulations can be found here. There will be additional qualification requirements, which will be stated in the forthcoming RFP.

Federal regulations provide a foundation for what is required of CDL third-party testing businesses.

If you are new to Oregon public procurement, or would like training or assistance with how to successfully compete in the government marketplace, the Government Contract Assistance Program has free tools available.

Prior to the posting of the RFP, if you have questions related to the CDL program, its regulations, or the process by which you can become a third-party tester, contact the DMV Third Party Programs Team by phone at (503) 945-5118, or by email at Nick.g.hopper@odot.state.or.us

Once the RFP has been posted in OPRIN, all questions must be directed to the single point of contact, Stephanie Lehman. Stephanie can be reached by email at Stephanie.k.lehman@odot.state.or.us
