Interpreter was too helpful
Earlier this year, a 43-year-old interpreter was handed a 20-day suspended sentence for helping at least two Turks pass the theoretical part of the driving licence test.

According to the judge, the man was providing the correct answers in the theory part of the test in Slagelse instead of just interpreting.

The police became aware of the crime after a sharp increase of Turks from around Denmark going to Slagelse to take the theory part of the test.
