Dear Secretary Gramian, 

I hope this email finds you, your family, and your team healthy & well. These are harrowing times and we cannot thank you enough for your service to the Commonwealth. In better times it would have been an honor to make your acquaintance in person; but, I would like to congratulate you on your appointment as the Secretary of Transportation. 

I am one of the owners of Driven2Drive, which is the FIRST Private Third Party Driver's License Testing company to be certified by PennDOT, and with six locations throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania. Since the pilot phase of the Third Party Program, we have licensed thousands of customers from all walks of life. There is no question that getting your driver's license is not only an essential need but in fact a CRITICAL need - especially now. Getting a driver's license is a lot of times associated with teens, however, our data indicates that a significant amount of those we test are in fact mature individuals that desperately need their driver's license for 'life sustaining critical tasks'.  

Third Party Testing was conceived to assist PennDOT with their tremendous back-log and to alleviate the strain on their resources. Prior to the pandemic customers experienced extreme wait time(s) (6months-9months). Now, PennDOT's data projects a back-log of at least 12months-18months. After watching your Tuesday's testimony in front of the Senate Transportation Committee, we understand the position and deficit that PennDOT is experiencing and will have to carry with them into the foreseeable future. By activating Third Party License Testing throughout the Commonwealth immediately, which is at NO COST and NO RISK to PennDOT; we as your partners can and should be used as the solution to this problem. 

Therefore, with this in mind, we would be meeting two critical needs: 

  • Those of the public that need their driver's license for Critical life sustaining tasks 
  • And that of administering these road tests without the strain on any PennDOT's financial or human capital resources 

Please understand that writing this letter to you directly was our only avenue and is not being taken lightly. In the wake of this pandemic we feel helpless, not only for ourselves, but also for those that have been begging us to get their driver's license. I am beseeching you on behalf of myself, my company, and our severely impacted industry; but especially I am beseeching you behalf of those customers in the Commonwealth that we ALL need (i.e nurses, cashiers, delivery, etc...) to carry out all life sustaining critical tasks. Now is the time, if you can, please consider our plight and proposal thoroughly. 

The impact of the decisions being made now will have a lasting affect on us all. At the same time, we are confident that our proposal is rooted in well-established and thought-out analysis, data, and projections. We need you now more than ever!
