A former Maryland state driver’s license examiner who later became a driving school owner recently pled guilty in U.S. District Court in Baltimore to conspiracy to commit identification document fraud. Ahmed Abdul Moiz, owner of the All-American Driving School, a third-party driver testing facility in Baltimore, submitted his plea on Friday, March 31.

Between 1998 and 2003, Moiz conspired with Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration employees and others in assisting more than 500 individuals — mostly from southwestern Asian countries — to fraudulently obtain Maryland driver’s licenses, commercial driver’s licenses and related documents in exchange for payments totaling more than $200,000, according to the Department of Transportation’s Office of Inspector General. MD-MVA has been provided a list of individuals who obtained licenses fraudulently in order to retest them.

Sentencing for Moiz is scheduled for July 6. The ongoing investigation is being conducted jointly with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security-Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
