The Knysna vehicle testing station which certified a bus involved in the Rheenendal accident in which 14 school children and the driver were killed last month has been shut down.
Western Cape transport MEC Robin Carlisle says as part of an ongoing investigation, the owner of TJ Motor Vehicle Testing Station has been charged with corruption.
A team investigating the crash has found that the bus had a range of defects, despite having been given a roadworthy certificate.
