300-plus truckies lose their licence

More than 300 truck drivers in Western Australia have had their licences suspended after the state government alleged they failed to pass their driving test.

An investigation by the Department of Transport and the Corruption and Crime Commission uncovered irregularities in the conduct of Neerabup-based driving school Mines West, which was one of several organisations contracted by the department to undertake heavy vehicle practical driving assessments.

A spokesperson for the department said it might mean some people were granted a licence despite not meeting requirements.
