Learner Drivers Caught Cheating

It has been revealed that more and more learner drivers are attempting to fraudulently pass their driving and theory tests – by hiring lookalikes to take their place!

With almost 700 cases reported in the last 8 months, it seems that the issue is on the rise, although this has been refuted by the DVSA as a “serious, but rare” offence.

The criminal doppelgängers have been known to charge anything from less than £100 up to £1800 to sit the exams for their counterparts. 37 have been jailed for the crime, and 97 have had their licenses revoked.
