HGV Mechanics Fined by Magistrates after Pleading Guilty to Falsifying Inspection Forms
Two HGV mechanics, represented by SBC, received fines at court for deliberately inputting incorrect data into inspection forms. The mechanics, both of whom pleaded guilty, could have faced up to two years imprisonment for these offences.
After hearing mitigation the Magistrates were persuaded that these were isolated incidents in men of otherwise good character, and that steps had already been taken to prevent such incidents ever occurring again. He was also able to show that they had cooperated fully with the DVSA investigation from the outset, and felt great remorse for their actions.
