A fake driving instructor received a four month jail sentence after admitting fraud.

The 44 year old male from Dewsbury taught learners for cash despite not being qualified. He is thought to have taken around £9000 from pupils between 2007 and 2010.

Not only were learners duped into thinking he was a qualified instructor, but he did not hold the correct car insurance making what he offered a dangerous service.
The defendant said he knows what he has done is wrong but he just wanted to work, he apologises for what he did.

Holly Harper of Britannia Driving School said: “Always look for a reputable company when taking driving lessons. Ideally a company should have a shop premise for their clients. This allows you to know who you are dealing with and what you are signing up for.”
