Wannabe Private Hire Driver pleads guilty to forgery after getting caught trying to fool licensing authority

25 Jan 2019

 

A wannabe private hire driver from Slough who forged documents in a bid to get a job has been punished for his "somewhat 1980's" attempts to fool the council. 


In March 2018, Nasar Mehmood, applied to be a private-hire driver and at a meeting with Slough Borough Council’s licensing team.

 

On two occasions Mehmood presented a driving standards agency pass certificate where key dates had been tippexed over and new dates added in. 


According to a report in the Slough Observer, he also presented a Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead medical examination form which also showed altered dates.

Mehmood, pleaded guilty to forgery at Reading Magistrates’ Court on January 18 where he was sentenced to a 12-month conditional discharge for 12 months on each count and was ordered to pay a victims surcharge of £20.

Councillor Pavitar K Mann, cabinet member for regulation and consumer protection, said: 

  

“Though it is clear Mr Mehmood is no criminal mastermind and his forgery attempts were unsophisticated and somewhat 1980s, we could not stand by and do nothing.

“People using taxis and minicabs in Slough trust those drivers with their safety and for our drivers this is their livelihood."
