A Mandarin theory test interpreter has been sentenced for defrauding the DSA by aiding more than 200 candidates to pass the theory test through a cheat’s code. Peter Hui, a Mandarin interpreter in Birmingham, charged individuals a fee for the service which involved saying ‘shi’ (the Mandarin word for ‘yes’) before the correct answer on the test.
Two candidates have admitted to charges of conspiring to commit fraud by paying Hui and have both been ordered to carry out 80 hours of unpaid work and pay £100 in costs. Both have additionally had their theory test passes revoked.
This practice, believed by police to have made Hui up to £100,000, is being taken very seriously by the police and the DSA as it placed those unfit to drive behind the wheel of vehicles putting other road users and pedestrians at risk.
