THE case of driving test fraudster Shivan Ibrahim is certainly worrying.
He accepted money to take theory tests for people but was eventually caught when he booked a test at the Huddersfield centre.
He admitted three charges and asked for a further nine to be taken into consideration.
But the question remains over safety.
Even Ibrahim’s own solicitor admits there is a public safety concern in this case. At least two of the people Ibrahim took the test for went on to pass their practical driving tests, but how safe are they on the roads?
And the judge said these offences are difficult to detect which again is a great concern.
It makes you wonder just how many other people like Ibrahim are out there taking tests for others and how easy it is to fool the system.
And, if this is the case, does it mean our roads are getting potentially more lethal.
Although the judge was right to jail Ibrahim for 18 months many would have thought he deserved banning from the road for longer than 12 months – more or less the time he will be in jail anyway.
