No law for pre-testing

I RECENTLY visited my local Vehicle Inspection Depot to make a driving test booking on behalf of my son. I was surprised to be referred to CMED to make a “pre-test” booking with them.


What on earth is a “pre-test”? What if he is

found to be competent with CMED but fails the driving test with VID? Why must he be tested twice anyway?


I decided to consult my lawyer on the matter and he assures me that there is no supporting legislation for this so called “pre-test”. It has never appeared in the government gazette. Where does the generated revenue end up and under whose legislation?
