Not content with concert tickets, electronics and the latest Yeezy or Nike release it seems resellers have found their newest hustle.

In January a driving instructor from London came under fire after he was revealed to be advertising last minute test slots at a five times the price.

Securing slots from unnamed examiner, Cogan would then list them on Facebook marketplace charging an eye-watering £212 rather than the usual £62 to £75.

In the space of two weeks 30 alleged February dates at 10 different centres were posted.

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) at the time said they were investigating the unnamed examiner, hoping to understand how the unknown man was able to provide the slots to other instructors or whether he is breaching any rules or guidelines when doing so. ivermectin pour on vs injectable
