PdRP CLEARANCE

 vs

THE NEW CHILD CARE ACT

For parents who make use of shuttle services, please note that a POLICE CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE obtained in

pursuance of PROFESSIONAL DRIVERS PERMIT, cannot by default be deemed as being a CERTIFICATE OF GOOD STANDING in terms of the NEW CHILD CARE ACT.

Both acts serve different purposes and as direct result thereof
have very different qualifying criteria.

In terms of the National Road traffic Act 1996 (ACT 93 of 1996) an applicant may obtain a Professional Driving Permit (PDrP) if the applicant (i) has a valid driving license for the type of vehicle in question, (ii) has been certified as medically fit by a medical practitioner, (iii) has not been convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol, reckless or negligent driving, or offence where violence was a factor and (iv) has not had his/ her drivers license suspended.

In terms of this act, convictions older than a period of five (5) years from the date of conviction will not be taken into consideration, when applying for a PDrP.

In terms of the New Child Care Act 2005 (ACT 38 of 2005) any natural person will qualify, unless that person has been found guilty of murder, attempted murder, rape, indecent assault or assault with the intention to do grievous bodily harm with regard to a child.

This act does allow for persons found guilty of murder, attempted murder, rape, indecent assault or assault with the intention to do grievous bodily harm with regard to a child, within a period of FIVE (5) years of the commencement of this act, to be deemed as having been found unsuitable to work with children.
