ICAC recommendation welcomed

24 January 2014

Roads and Maritime Services has welcomed the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) decision and recommendation today.

Roads and Maritime referred the independent assessor to ICAC and NSW Police after a complaint was made.

Roads and Maritime acted immediately in cancelling the heavy vehicle licences of drivers tested by Christopher Binos. All drivers have been contacted and offered a retest.

Roads and Maritime has also revoked his accreditation and cancelled his driving instructor licence as a result of our investigation.

Roads and Maritime will work with industry to install in-cabin video cameras to record and monitor heavy vehicle competency based assessments.  This was the principal recommendation made by ICAC.

The agency is also investigating additional options to improve the assessment process.
