London, Aug.13 (ANI): Indian origin Gageen Preet Singh, 35, adopted a variety of disguises to fool driving test examiners as part of his fraudulent 'test taking' business

He used to charge thousands of pounds to take driving tests for incapable clients, but kept failing them, and eventually landed in jail.

According to the Daily Mail, Singh tried to outwit test centre staff by alternating his headwear, sometimes arriving in a turban, at others in a beanie hat, a wig or a flat cap.

But he was finally caught because he forgot to vary the car he arrived in - a Mini Cooper.

Singh was yesterday sentenced at Guildford Crown Court to 14 months in prison after he was caught taking a test in Milton Keynes in October last year.

Singh, who operated principally in Indian communities throughout South East, London, the Midlands, East Anglia the North East, had 51,000 pounds in cash seized from his home by police after his arrest.

This is believed to be just a fraction of what he earned from his crimes. He was previously jailed for eight months in October last year for the same crime.

The Indian national will be deported after serving his sentence. (ANI)
