SODELPA's Aseri Radrodro said hundreds of people are being turned away because they don't meet this requirement.

He said he cannot imagine that all police recruits will be called on to drive vehicles.

The MP wants the Fiji Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Commission to undertake a full investigation.
