Report someone who is pretending to be someone else to take a theory or driving test for them.

It’s illegal to cheat at a driving or theory test by:

  • using an impersonator to take the test for you
  • impersonating a candidate and taking their test for them

Impersonators and people who use them can be:

  • sent to prison
  • banned from driving
  • ordered to carry out unpaid work
  • made to pay court costs

How to report someone

Give as many of these details as possible when you report someone:

  • names and addresses of the people
  • descriptions of what they look like
  • dates and times
  • where you found out about it, eg at a place or on social media

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) will investigate your report, but might not be able to tell you what happens.
