Selling driving licences: Limpopo officials and accomplices, 10 arrested

The Hawks take down operation on Thursday, 5 December 2019, resulted in the arrest of ten suspects aged between 29 and 54 at Malamulele and Mutale testing stations respectively for allegedly selling driving licences.

Following a community outcry since 2017, the Hawks’ Serious Corruption Investigation team in collaboration with Road Traffic Management Cooperation Centre (RTMC), embarked on a project-driven investigation aimed at addressing allegations of corrupt activities at the testing stations in the province.

The Hawks’ investigation revealed that the driving licences were sold at a minimum of R8600.00 per applicant.

The suspects which include a senior licensing officer, three examiners, two clerks, cashier, instructor, general worker and a middleman are expected to appear in the Malamulele and Mutale Magistrate’s Courts respectively on Friday, 6 December 2019.
