A driving test cheat and the impersonator who sat the tests for him have both been punished with suspended prison sentences and community service today. Following a detailed investigation conducted by DSA investigators, Yeboah, 23, and Acheampong, 32, pleaded guilty to two counts of fraud by misrepresentation. At St Albans Crown Court today Acheampong was given an eight-week sentence suspended for 12 months, ordered to do 100 hours of unpaid work, disqualified from driving for four months, and placed on a 12-month supervision order.
Yeboah was given an eight-week prison sentence suspended for 12 months, ordered to do 120 hours of community service, and disqualified from driving for four months. Acheampong fraudulently sat Yeboah's theory test at Southgate theory test centre in March 2008. Yeboah later attempted a practical driving test himself in November 2008, but failed. He again enlisted the help of Acheampong, who arrived at Watford driving test centre to re-take Yeboah's practical test on December 11. That was when DSA acted on its investigation and the pair were arrested.
