Two driving schools closed after fraud during the theoretical exam
Posted On March 17, 2021
Schools have reportedly offered their clients the opportunity to come to the exam with headphones and a hidden camera and then have the correct answers prompted. Customers would have paid between 1,000 and 1,500 euros to benefit from these “largesse”.
After being informed of these practices in February, the police carried out five searches this week in the Antwerp district of Deurne, with the support of the arrest unit and the dog team. Four suspects – three women and a man – were arrested.
These were the two owners of the driving schools in question and two of their employees. Investigators also found more than 15,000 euros in cash and seized 14 mobile phones, 10 laptops, 6 computers, 11 clothes with hidden cameras and several transmitters.
Driving schools were closed and placed under seal. The suspects will be presented to the investigating judge, the investigation is continuing in the meantime. The police say they are very concerned about these facts because customers who have used the fraudulent system will make the streets of Antwerp more dangerous
