Description

This series exposed the shabby empire of Gary Probst, king of the state's commercial driving schools. Over a 10-year period, Probst built the largest franchise in the state using a series of tactics designed to circumvent the law. The state, well aware of his activities, did nothing to stop him. The story includes the following findings, among others: Probst employed unlicensed instructors who never received required training from the state; the state conducted over 40 investigations of Probst's schools, but never took action against him; Probst falsified records.
