Lowan Electorate - Constituency questions

Victorian Parliament - November 18, 2019 - 

Ms KEALY (Lowan) (11:50:58): (1439) My constituency question is to the Minster for Roads, and the information I seek is: how many drivers in the Lowan electorate requiring a regular medical review have had their licence suspended with no notification by VicRoads, even though the required information has been appropriately supplied? Two constituents have recently contacted my office, sharing their experience of discovering VicRoads had suspended their licence when they were pulled over by police. In the first instance my constituent supplied his medical review a month before the VicRoads deadline. However, VicRoads still suspended his licence without notification. VicRoads confirmed that my constituent’s medical review paperwork was received and in the system but not yet actioned. However, his licence was still suspended. In the second case, my constituent had been driving on a suspended licence for seven months with no correspondence from VicRoads that his licence had been suspended for failing to provide medical information. Both constituents first became aware their licence had been suspended when pulled over by police. Minister, how many drivers in the Lowan electorate have had their licence suspended by VicRoads without notification?
