Pretoria - The endemic corruption at Driver Learner Testing Centres (DLTCs) will be dealt with, Transport Minister Dipuo Peters said on Tuesday.

“I want to see more results from this unit (the RTM's National Anti-corruption Unit) in dealing with the corruption and fraud committed at Driver Learner Testing Centres. For us to restore public confidence in our system, we must clean up these DLTCs and ensure they operate in an efficient and effective manner,” she told reporters in Pretoria. “We have had complaints from the community and driving school operators. Now is the time to act and bring to book those responsible. I would like to see convictions at provincial and municipal levels as well, where employers take disciplinary action against everyone implicated.”

Peters urged law enforcement officers to “close the loop and crack down on these illegal activities within our system”.

Earlier, Peters said a 46 percent decline was recorded in this year's Easter road fatalities, compared to 2015.
