Western Australian Truck Drivers Have Licenses Suspended Amidst Assessment Debacle

truckMore than 300 Western Australian truck drivers had their licenses suspended following claims that licenses weren’t assessed properly.

The WA Department of Transport and Corruption and Crime Commission launched an investigation which revealed “irregularities” in heavy vehicle practical driving assessment provider’s conduct.

According to a spokesperson for the department, some people may have had a license issued to them without having to meet the requirements.

There were 326 truck drivers who are “unlikely to have passed” the department alleged and are therefore suspending their licenses. The spokesperson did not specify whether the drivers had failed or were not assessed at all.

The records are under further review and we can expect further suspensions.

Anyone who had their license suspended can regain their license by completing a free assessment with the department.

The training organisation contracted to the department has also been suspended as the investigation continues.
