Illegal selling of diplomas and certificates
Recently, messages have been circulating to claim you can obtain a Traffic Officer Diploma for a fee without attending any classes or writing an examination. The Western Cape Government will never ask any person to pay to receive a diploma or certificate of competence in any field of study. It never uses WhatsApp messages or emails from Gmail accounts to communicate with the public. The only channels of communication are official accounts and official websites.
If you wish to become a Certified Traffic Officer, find out how to apply to attend an accredited course at an accredited institution. Only use reliable sources of information about Western Cape Government job advertisements. If you are not sure, contact the Department directly.
