Almost 2,000 learner drivers tried to cheat their way to driving licences last year, a Freedom of Information request has revealed.
The Sun report:
FIVE learner drivers a day on average try to cheat their way to a test pass — by sending someone to take it for them, The Sun can reveal.
Figures show that 455 practical tests and 1,469 theory tests in 2011/12 involved a suspected impersonator.
Cops arrested 273 scammers in that time — leading to 73 convictions, 119 police cautions and 837 licences being revoked.
