The City of Cold is looking at putting some pressure on the provincial government when it comes to road tests. The city says it has heard multiple complaints from residents who are trying to get a license that they are facing severe wait times and gridlock
New rules for testing were announced last October under the NDP government. Road tests are now handled by government employees. Mayor Craig Copeland says the new method just doesn’t seem to work in the community.
“Unfortunately the system is just not working. They should have tried it out in a small sample size and not the whole province.”
Council had previously written a letter to Service Alberta back in November. As for what a change should look like, Copeland says he didn’t think the system was broke in the first place.
“Bring back the private guy. They were doing a great job. This is impacting the people who have the licensing businesses in our community. It’s not efficient.”
