A group who used driving school skills to get them out of trouble have been jailed for 18 months.

The drivers, from Sydney, Victoria and New South Wales, used their vehicles to travel for a few days from Melbourne to Brisbane, Queensland, and Victoria to meet up with another group of people.

The group was on their way to visit family in Sydney, where they met up with a woman who they were planning to meet in Sydney.

The woman told the group she wanted to meet them at a local car wash to buy her a car.

The women’s car broke down at the car wash, and they decided to go in search of a car wash.

“We didn’t know what to do at that point,” Mr Wilson said.

“She wanted to pay us to drive her car out there and we thought it would be easier than just driving her car.”

When we got to the car, she said ‘I have no money for a car, I need to pay you to go to the wash, I’ve got a flat and a car’.

“Mr Wilson and his friends drove the woman to a car washing, where Mr Wilson’s friends and Mr Wilson paid her to take the car there.”

They had the car sitting on the dock for a while and then when they left they got into a taxi and took her to a washing machine,” Mr Wallace said.

The car was later found by a man who was waiting for it on the dockside.

The men had used the same strategy to beat police when they were in jail.

The man, who had no previous criminal history, told the court he had been arrested and detained on three separate occasions.”

He said he had never been arrested before and I asked him if he had ever been arrested,” Mr Wall said.

When the men got to Sydney, Mr Wilson told the police the woman had asked him to drive for her.”

I said I would drive her to her car wash,” MrWall said.

He said the woman, who was wearing a mask and had a mask over her face, asked if he was a police officer.”

My response was ‘I’m not a police official’,” Mr Wall told the trial.

The judge imposed a jail term of 18 months for each of the six drivers, and he also sentenced Mr Wallace and Mr Wall’s friend, Scott Walker, to 12 months each.
