SURREY, B.C. — A truck driver training school in B.C. is under investigation for allegedly speeding up the licensing process with forged documents.
The Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) is investigating the South West Driving Academy, for allegedly helping its students forge truck licensing documents and age papers to look more authentic.
ICBC executed a search warrant on May 30 at the driving schools office, but no charges or sanctions have been laid, as the investigation is ongoing.
After more than a year of investigation, ICBC estimates about 160 immigrants from India have obtained commercial drivers licenses under false pretences.
