CALGARY, Alta. — Calgary’s Delta Driving School has had its business licence permanently revoked following charges that it fraudulently provided unqualified drivers with Class 1 licences.

“The business licences for the activity of the school has been revoked immediately — a lot of consideration had to be given,” Marc Halat, the city of Calgary’s chief licence inspector, told the Calgary Sun.

Delta has 30 days to appeal the decision, which Halat said they probably will. The move by the city was encouraging news to Det. Dave Rock, one of the officers involved in the investigation.

“I think the city has really taken responsibility to make sure Delta’s on the up-and-up,” said Rock.
“If they do re-open one day, hopefully they’ll be monitored by Marc Halat and his group.”
