Four people were arrested on Friday for corruption and fraud in connection with the issuing of learner driver's licences in Oudtshoorn and Calitzdorp, Western Cape police said.
Captain Bernadine Steyn said police conducted an operation together with the transport and public works department at three transport premises after a lengthy investigation.
Two men, aged 29 and 30, were arrested at the traffic department in Calitzdorp. A 39-year-old woman was arrested in Oudtshoorn.
Steyn said a 32-year-old man was arrested at a driving school in Olivier Street, Oudtshoorn.
Allegations were that he received money to bribe traffic officers to issue learner's licenses.
“More arrest are expected to be made.”
The four will appear in the Oudtshoorn Magistrate's Court on Monday. - Sapa
