Driver’s license for foreigners: six suspects arrested in Quebec and Ontario

Two Quebecers and four Ontarians who allegedly produced and used false documents with the Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ) to provide driver’s licenses to “foreign customers” were arrested Wednesday morning after a four-year investigation.

“The suspects allowed their foreign customers to obtain a class 5 (passenger vehicle) and possibly a class 1 (heavy goods vehicle) driver’s license from the SAAQ, using falsified documents”, indicated the Sûreté of Quebec in a press release.

Among the suspects apprehended are two Quebecers, Gurvinder Singh, 55, of Laval and Gurpreet Singh, 33, of Saint-Eustache. The other four suspects, aged between 50 and 68, were arrested in Cornwall and Caledon, near Toronto.

The suspects are expected to appear at the Montreal courthouse later on various charges, including production and use of false documents.
