Calls for update on licence testing
With Regiona Victoria today moving to step three of the Regional Roadmap out of Restrictions, queries around if regional licence testing will resume have begun to be asked.
Member for South West Coast and Shadow Minister for Rural Roads Roma Britnell says testing needs to resume immediately in regional locations, to begin clearing the backlog from much of the year.
“All VicRoads offices need to be conducting tests at least five days a week as a minimum to try and clear the backlog,” She said.
“Offices like Portland, Hamilton and Ararat only test on limited days – to help clear this massive backlog they all need to be operating five days a week at a minimum and larger offices like Warrnambool could extend to weekend testing"
