A driving test impersonator has been given an eight-month jail sentence for “conspiracy to obtain property by deception”.
Joseph Nazaire Djoukam of south-east London appeared before Croydon Crown Court yesterday, where he was found guilty of illegally sitting in driving tests for unwilling or unfit “candidates”.
Presiding judge Stephen Walker sentenced the imposter and continued to mete out punishment to three of Djoukam’s ‘clients’, who received a combined total of 350 hours’ community service and a £1600 bill for court costs.
Andrew Rice, head of the Driving Standards Agency’s Fraud and Integrity division, said, "We are delighted with the outcome of today's verdict. Tackling impersonations is a key priority for the Agency, as failing to identify offenders presents a significant danger to road safety.”
