MORE than 450 truckies have been banished from the roads in the wake of an alleged licence rort.
VicRoads said 284 of the 665 drivers caught up in the scam, exclusively revealed in the Herald Sun, had had their licences cancelled after they didn't make an appointment to re-sit the test, while 126 surrendered their permit.
It is understood some told VicRoads they had the truck licence but never got behind the wheel.
Another 49 drivers failed the re-test and 70 passed.
The Herald Sun revealed in September an allegedly corrupt truckie tester at Linfox signed fraudulent certificates for cash.
VicRoads then issued a truck licence to drivers, a handful of whom were later involved in smashes that caused injury.
It ordered the drivers to re-sit licence tests after it was unclear exactly how many had received their paperwork officially and how many had bought the man's signature on the black market.
Truckies had to book a re-test by yesterday.
One hundred and twenty are still to be re-tested within the next six weeks.
VicRoads CEO Gary Liddle said truckies who received licences from the man were ordered to re-do the test because safety was its priority.
Police spokeswoman Kate Millar said no charges had been laid and investigations were ongoing.
