154 truckers lose licenses in British Columbia

| 6/9/2008

In British Columbia, 154 truck drivers have been stripped of their commercial licenses following an investigation into forged documents.

The Globe and Mail reported that some of the truckers allegedly used fake letters that claimed they had extensive driving experience in their home country and therefore didn’t need a new license from the province. Although drivers were able to provide copies of documents before, now they will have to provide original documentation.

Some of the truckers attended the Southwest Driving Academy in Surrey, which shut down last year because of an investigation.
