Hi Mrs Nell

Yes. Charmaine contacted me to let me know.

I wish we had been notified years ago.

Her business has had bad publicity despite her actually having fulfilled her obligations to you. Not good!

I will publish your apology as a means of making up to her.

Thank you.

Hi Pat,

This is an email.

To rectify a problem I thought I had a few Years Back with Charmaine from Marge’s driving school.

I posted on the web site that we could not find her and she had basically been paid upfront and disappeared.

We did locate Charmaine it was all a misunderstanding she was quite seriously ill in hospital.

My daughter was given all the lessons owed to her and did get her licence through Charmaine.

Apologies for the misunderstanding.

You may contact me if you require further info on:  081 377 4956

Kind regards

Vicki Nell

Hi Pat,

Maybe not corruption but never the less another problem.

Marge’s driving school in Alberton you don’t get an address

you pay R1300,00 go and do your learners all above board.

Then you book 10 lessons at a discounted price and pay upfront after lesson 3 you are

ready to book your licence which you do (all above board) then the lady disappears.

She can only be reached on 3 x Cell numbers, all are off so you have a date for your licence

and a booking but you have to pay another driving school to now access you and carry on.

A very cheated Mom.

Kind regards,

Vicki Nell

Dear Vicky,

Sadly we have not been authorised to put a stop to all these cases of corruption or, as in this case, a lack of business ethics in the driving school industry.

The Police call it a civil case and refer you to the Small Claims Court. No-one at Government level will do anything about it because our industry is unregulated (in a country losing an average of 14 000 people per year in crashes, costing the economy R309 billion!)

I can upload it on our website to warn other members of the public but please supply her email address so that we can let her know we have received a complaint and give her a fair chance to defend herself.

If she chooses to ignore the efforts made to be fair, then she would be blacklisted. May we publish your details?

Best regards,

P.A. Allen

Thank you for your response, my details can be published, we don’t have an email address even for her just cell numbers.

Maybe just a warning to others would be good.

Kind regards,
