An apprentice driver who spoke little English tried to cheat her theory test by hiding a Bluetooth headset under a specially made hijab, a court heard.
Hatice Sadir got the right answers, but officials questioned after the exam when they found the hidden device.
The 41-year-old was caught in the Southwark Theory Test Center on January 9 last year, prosecutor Rajesh Pabary told the City of London Magistrates & Court.
& # 39; A Bluetooth receiver was found in her possession that was used for a theory exam fraud, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; You must book a theory exam on a specific date in the test center and provide personal information such as email address, date of birth and address.
& # 39; During the booking process, a voice-over can be booked in English or in Welsh. If a person has difficulty reading, he can request a voice-over.
& # 39; They get headphones when they arrive in the middle and the questions are read aloud. Those present may not receive any help during the test. & # 39;
After several cancellations, Sadir & # 39; s theory test was scheduled for January 9, 2018 in Southwark and a & # 39; voice-over & # 39; asked.
& # 39; When she went to the center, she was wearing a large headscarf, & # 39; Mr. Pabary said. & # 39; She was recognized by an employee two weeks earlier – the last time she wasn't wearing a headscarf.

& # 39; This, coupled with the fact that she spoke very little English, aroused suspicion. She answered the questions very quickly and the test was successful. & # 39;
After the test, Sadir was confronted with personnel who searched her headscarf and found the Bluetooth device, the City of London court heard.
Mr. Pabary explained that the Bluetooth receiver had connected her phone to a & # 39; facilitator & # 39; who listens to the questions read and then gives the answers. The usual fee for this type of service is between £ 400 and £ 800. & # 39;
Sadir admitted using the device to cheat on the test, but refused to reveal the facilitator's identity.
& # 39; She admitted that she was given a specially adapted scarf and would pay £ 300 for the service & # 39 ;, Mr. Pabary said.
& # 39; The test was booked at some distance from where she lived – this is usually done to prevent detection.

& # 39; This crime is about potential risk. Mrs Sadir could have obtained a full driving license in the UK.
& # 39; If the device was not found, it would have continued and may have passed a practical test.
& # 39; There is a risk to other road users from someone who does not understand the rules and regulations of the road.
& # 39; It undermines the integrity of the test – people using the British roads expect to share the road with competent drivers.
Magistrate Jacqueline Jenkins said to Sadir: & We see this as a serious matter and one that has exceeded the custody threshold.
& # 39; However, since you pleaded guilty on the first occasion, we suspend the sentence for 12 months. & # 39;
Sadir, from Kidbrooke, South East London, admitted fraud and was sentenced to 20 weeks' imprisonment for 12 months. She was also instructed to pay £ 2,115 in costs.
