Skip to comments.Michigan: Trucking school 'encouraged' illegal documentation
Posted on 08/16/2012 12:48:42 PM PDT by cripplecreek
Authorities in Michigan have shut down a Detroit truck driving school for encouraging students to apply for CDLs with fake documents.
As of Wednesday, Aug. 15, Great Truckers Driving School can no longer provide driving instruction in Michigan.
Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson said in a press release she revoked the schools certificate and fined it $34,000.
The school was operated by Sukhjit Sandhu and Rajinder Sandhu. Johnsons press release said the school provided students with fake lease agreements that listed addresses of vacant buildings or unknowing residents homes. Those fake leases were used by students to show they complied with state law and lived in Michigan when they applied for a CDL.
Providing false information when obtaining a drivers license or state ID card is a significant violation and we will hold those responsible to account, Johnson said, according to the release. We take our responsibility to protect the integrity of ID documents very seriously.
Rajinder Sandhu was fined an additional $13,000 and his driving instructor certificate was also revoked. More than 85 CDLs and CDL temporary instruction permits obtained with false information through Great Truckers Driving School have been cancelled.
Johnson credited the Detroit branch office staff that first discovered the CDL fraud and reported it.
Because of them, we were able to investigate this matter, take appropriate action and refer the matter to law enforcement authorities, Johnson said, according to the news release.
Two Irish guys. LOL
Either Pakistani or Indian.
I believe there was a sitcom about them back in the 70s. “Sandhu and Son”
You big dhimmi. LOL
Were they with the IRA?
This may be of interest.
Makes sense. Any alerts on van type trucks or the 18 wheel ones?
Indian. My first cardiologist was an Indian man named Rajinder.
Here’s their website. They show an 18 wheeler and a schoolbus.
Names sound Hindu
Did you happen to ask your doctor his/her religion?
or perhaps more accurately, "just one more job Americans aren't being hired to do."
Aren't Hindus relatively quiet and law-abiding?
According to their website they’re Michigan Works approved.
I’m not sure but I believe Michigan works is run by the state.
Uh oh. Details at 11.
Michigan Works sounds like a public private partnership thing. I know they used to work through the unemployment office.
>>Governed by a Workforce Development Board comprised of private sector representatives and Local Elected Officials<<
It’s keyworded now, and I may use my afternoon ping on this one!
Well, I don’t see the problem.
“Illegal” doesn’t mean illegal. And if it did, it wouldn’t mean “against the law”. And if it DID mean “against the law”, there isn’t any law, so that one goes out the window, too. But if it WAS illegal, and MEANT illegal, and there WAS law, there wouldn’t be anyone to prosecute the illegality, so the entire exercise is utterly meaningless.
And by the way, “documentation” doesn’t mean documentation. It means racist. Just so you know.
You might be doing all kinds of things without your knowledge because of politicians.
Sure would be nice if I won that $333 million lottery.
" The school, operated by Sukhjit Sandhu and Rajinder Sandhu, provided out-of-state students with fake lease agreements that listed the addresses of vacant buildings and homes of random people unconnected to the students. The documents were used by students to falsely show they lived in Michigan when they applied for a CDL, which are required for drivers who operate commercial vehicles like large trucks and buses. "Out of curiosity, I searched the surname "Sandhu" for recent news within past week . . .don't know if these fellas are members of RoP, but that surname popped up in CA for rape/kidnapping and Ohio for drug trafficing (synthetic marijuana, bath salts and other items.
Bless her courageous heart.
We don’t need anyone that drives like they do in Mexico, driving anything here.
Also they need to know ENGLISH to read important signs, which I doubt they do.
I’ll bet some Muzzie owned driving school ratted them out. The perps names sound Sikh to me. Great way to eliminate some competition and take heat off yourself.
Ruth Johnson was the true gem of the 2010 election cycle. In my opinion the single best SOS in the country today.
That woman oozes integrity and nobody gets a free pass from her just because they’re republican.
The 'school' might not even teach trucking. They tell the applicants 'sign this paper' and you'll get free money every month from the government. The the trucking school takes their cut for 'classes' and tells the students they don't need to come to class is they don't want to... it's a scam. A scam-the-tax-payer operation.
Remember the MSM stories about high numbers of students defaulting on their student loans? The MSM makes it look like the kids defaulting are middle class blond kids with high IQ's and sad stories. That's not the case.
