Hi, can someone tell me if if we still do driving test for Van 2.5 Ton in Mauritius? I heard from different voices that it is no longer and can drive a Van 2.5 Ton with a Private Car licence. If this is true:

1.Why are those company recruiting drivers are still asking for both private car and Van 2.5 Ton.
2.Why does the driving licence department do not put a stamp on the driving licence in the B2 Category.

I have looked into the road traffic act but it does not seem to mention that a holder of B Private car licence can legally drive a 2.5 ton van which falls under B2 license. how to verify same. Any help. thanks for helping.
