This initiative aims to reduce delays in the updating of the Department of Transport's computer records for licensing transactions conducted by police in remote areas of Western Australia. Delays in updating the transactions can result in people being inadvertently charged with driving offences as they may not have the payment receipt to prove they hold a valid licence. This situation causes problems for transport, police officers and the licence holder.
As a part of the initiative the Department of Corrective Services (Sherrif's Office) will increase licensing transaction collection from remote communities to reduce the delays in processing licensing work, and therefore reduce the incidence of people being incorrectly charged.
