BSM Head Avoids Driving Ban

The head of BSM has managed to avoid a driving ban despite having 17 points on his driving licence.

Abu Haris Shafi, managing director of British School of Motoring (BSM) appeared in court after his car was clocked by a speed camera breaking a 50 mph speed limit.

But when asked to admit who was driving the car at the time Mr Shafi, 47, refused, earning him six points on his licence, on top of 11 he already had.

Mr Shafi managed to persuade Bournemouth magistrates that banning him from driving would risk his job. Instead he was fined a paltry £750

Simon Bush of Britannia Driving School said: “It’s unacceptable for the boss of Britain’s biggest driving school to have 17 point on his driving licence and be caught speeding at 50mph; it’s the case of do as we say,  but not as we do.”
