Man Jailed 2 Months After He Pays Someone To Take Basic Theory Test For Him
Fearing that he would fail his basic theory driving test, Goh Ah Hock paid someone else S$500 to do it in his place.
But the man he hired to do so was eventually found out by the tester.
As a result, the 52-year-old Malaysian was jailed for two months for the offence of cheating by personation.
Zhang Zhongliang, the man who was to take his place in the test, got the same sentence in July for attempted cheating.
Man pays agent S$500 for someone to take basic theory test for him
Channel NewsAsia (CNA) reports that Goh had been riding his Malaysia-registered motorcycle while working at a construction company.
When he heard that the use of foreign vehicles would be banned in Singapore in July, he planned to purchase a Singapore motorcycle and convert his Malaysian license to a Singapore one.
However, he was concerned that he might not pass the basic theory test. So, he got his colleague to introduce him to an agent, who would help with the conversion process.
