    A learner driver attacked his examiner after he refused to accept a cash bribe in exchange for letting her pass.


    Jin Su reportedly handed the examiner a red envelope which contained between £400 and £500 during her test and said: 'This will be good for you – and for me.'

    When examiner Keith Ashcroft refused the bribe and declared the test over, Su attacked him in the street, and tried to insist that the test continue.

    When she was arrested she told police that the money had been for luck rather than a bribe.

    However, at Manchester Crown Court she pleaded guilty to offering a bribe and common assault.

    Su, who has failed her driving test five times, was sentenced to 50 hours unpaid work and will also pay Mr Ashcroft £100 compensation.

    Judge David Stockdale QC told her: 'You offered the money in expectation that he would in due course record that you passed. That is corruption of a serious kind.

    'Driving examiners carry out important work for the safety of all road users, by ensuring that all those who drive are competent to do so.'

    Earlier this month, it was reported that a British woman has failed her driving theory test 90 times, at a cost of a whopping £2,790.
