A man who failed his driving test five times got a friend to take it for him – who then failed in ‘spectacular fashion’.
Dim-witted Hadi Mohammed, 28, and Derbas Hamed, 25, cheated the test system and were both jailed after admitting the fraud.
Gloucester Crown Court heard that Hamed, a qualified driver, turned up at the test centre in the city pretending to be Mohammed.
But suspicions were immediately aroused when he arrived driving his own car without ‘L’ plates and without anyone else in the vehicle.
He then took the test in Mohammed’s name and failed ‘in a spectacular fashion’, making 16 driving mistakes in the process.
Didn’t he ever hear that old chestnut about drivers learning so many bad habits after their test they would fail after a couple of years?
They got three months…
