A Driving Standards Agency (DSA) examiner was arrested due to conspiracy to commit fraud. Evidence found that he had accepted £3000 from driving test candidates in return for a guaranteed pass.
At the same time as his arrest, officers were arresting 4 candidates and 2 driving instructors. It is thought that the candidates approach their instructor, who then has a quiet word with particular examiners.
Over 100 people are thought to have bribed this particular examiner and the police are in the process of revoking the licences of those that have gained a full driving licence unlawfully.
The police are also cracking down on identity fraud, with more than 900 cases across the country. People go on test impersonating the learner due to sit their test.
