The Police will be charging two men, a 28-year-old man for his suspected involvement in attempted cheating by personation and another 51-year-old man for his suspected involvement in a conspiracy to commit cheating by personation.
On 28 June 2022, the Police received a report on persons cheating during a test. The 28-year-man had allegedly impersonated the 51-year-old man to take the Computerised Theory Driving Test at the Singapore Safety Driving Centre located at 2 Woodlands Industrial Park E4.
Through extensive follow up investigations, officers from Woodlands Police Division arrested the two men on the same day at the said location. Investigations revealed that they had conspired to cheat as one of them had impersonated the other by presenting the other man’s work permit to take the Computerised Theory Test.
The two men will be charged on 30 June 2022. The offence of attempted cheating by personation and the offence of cheating by personation each carries an imprisonment term of up to five years, a fine, or both.
Members of the public are advised not to impersonate other persons. The Police take a serious view of persons who may be involved in such fraudulent activities, and will be dealt with in accordance with the law.
