SACRAMENTO -–

Two men are accused of running a scheme to sell commercial drivers licenses in Sacramento, according to the FBI.

The scheme dates back to 2011.

DMV employee Andrew Kimura and “broker” Pavitar Dosangh Singh, or “Peter,” allegedly accepted money in exchange for licenses or passing scores on driver’s tests, according to the FBI.

The men are now facing charges including bribery and conspiracy.  Court documents outline several interactions in which the men arranged deals to accept money in exchange for their services.

They charged thousands of dollars.

Kimura is now on leave from his job at the DMV.

DMV spokesperson Armando Botello sent FOX40 a statement saying in part:

“The DMV is currently reviewing all the driver licenses in this case and looking into revoking or cancelling those licenses.”

The DMV is also looking to tighten the current testing process.

Kimura’s attorney told FOX40:

“Good people sometimes make bad mistakes.  When they do, we just try to help them get through it,” said Attorney Bill Portonova.

Kimura has bonded out of jail.
