SUNSET PARK — The owner of a commercial driving school in Sunset Park has admitted to running a sophisticated cheating racket that allowed 500 applicants to fraudulently pass the written portions of their state driving exams, according to the Daily News.

Phillip Ng reportedly netted close to $900,000 over the past ten years operating the high-tech scheme.

After charging a hopeful applicant $1,800, Ng would supply him or her with a jacket that had a mini-camera sewn into the sleeve. The camera was rigged to feed video to a minivan outside the DMV, where Ng would review a test question and beep a cheater twice if the answer was A, four times for B and six times for C.

Ng’s driving school, called N&Y Professional Service Line, has also been implicated in a Virginia bus crash last year that resulted in the deaths of four passengers, the News reported. Prosecutors allege that Kin Yiu Cheung, a Queens bus driver who currently faces manslaughter charges for that crash, may have been a graduate of Ng’s school.
