The Liberia National Police have embarked on a vigorous road worthiness inspection exercise on vehicles owned and operated by driving schools across Monrovia. The exercise which began on September 15, 2012 included 25 driving schools' vehicles.
Police Spokesman George Bardue said during the inspection, all 25 vehicles were declared unfit based on the schools' failure for their vehicles to meet public safety standards.
In another development, the LNP has also begun the process of obtaining clearances for driver's license.
Mr. Bardue stressed that driver's license will not be issued to any driver who does not acquire a clearance from the Liberia National Police.
The Testing and Evaluation Unit of the LNP administers a test to applicants seeking to obtain driver's license.
He said since the beginning of September 35 individuals applied for driver's license clearances of all categories but 15 of ejected due to their inability to pass the test administered by the LNP. Twenty of the applicants made a successful pass.the applicants including two non Liberians were rejected due to their inability to pass the test administered by the LNP. Twenty of the applicants made a successful pass.
The LNP emphasized that no driver will be issued a driver's license from the Ministry of Transport without a clearance from the Liberia National Police.
