No, you cant let your friend take your learners test!

iol.co.za - Cape Town - Two friends were arrested after a vigilant examiner noticed the person writing the learner licence exam was not the man he claimed to be.

On Wednesday an examiner at the Durbanville Driving Licence Testing Centre raised the alarm after noticing that one of the people completing the test was not the original applicant, the City of Cape Town said.

According to the City, the applicant (who was waiting outside) had asked a friend to write the test on his behalf as he has a sight issue and was not adequately prepared to complete the written test himself. The friend also completed the eye test for him.

The two were arrested on a charge of fraud and held at the Durbanville police station. They appeared in the Bellville Magistrate’s Court on Friday and were released on bail of R2 000 each. The matter was postponed to 10 April to allow for the accused to obtain legal representation.

‘While I feel for the applicant, the fact is you cannot do this type of thing. It is illegal but could also have far-reaching consequences down the line when someone who has not been vetted gets behind the wheel of a car. I commend the examiner whose vigilance led to the discovery. She stopped what could have been a potentially dangerous situation,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, Alderman JP Smith.
