Cops: DMV Inspector Passes Driver For Stripping
Woman Allegedly Coerced Into Taking Off Clothes For Passing Grade

(CBS/AP) NAUGATUCK, Conn. A license inspector for the state Department of Motor Vehicles has been charged with persuading a woman to strip off some of her clothing in exchange for passing her driver's test.

Kevin Chagnon, 48, of New Britain, allegedly took advantage of a woman in her 20s who had failed her driver's test several times in the past, police said.

Chagnon was charged Tuesday with coercion, when he turned himself in to Naugatuck police. The charge of coercion is defined as compelling a person to involuntarily behave in a certain way by threats or some other form of pressure or force.

Police said Chagnon was giving a road test to the woman Dec. 13. She had failed the driving test several times previously. Chagnon allegedly told the woman he would issue her a driver's license if she would take her clothes off.

Police said the woman reluctantly took off some of her clothing, but refused to take off all of it and Chagnon issued the woman a license.

Chagnon was released on a written promise to appear Wednesday in Waterbury Superior Court.

Chagnon has been placed on paid administrative leave at the DMV.
explains a lot imo

Yeah, really. How do you fail a test multiple times when they already issue them to total idiots. You'd have to have an IQ somewhere in the teens.

If you can't pass the joke of a test we give here, you probably aren't even qualified to take the bus, let alone drive.

Seriously. I remember driving in the car with some people during their tests, and it's shocking what they let slide. it's as if they have a "pass all" rule that they only break if you actually kill someone.

They busted a bunch of folks in NoVA DMVs for giving licenses to immigrants (illegal and otherwise) who never even took the tests.

I flunked a few times.

1. Hit the back pole parallel parking. FAIL
2. passed all tests but "Appeared" afraid to drive FAIL
3. passed all tests but drove too slow. FAIL

4..... Well, it snowed the morning before the fourth try. I got in, and put the pedal to the floor of the '89 four banger Taurus. Spinning tires in the ice during the reverse test like I was prepping for a run down the dragstrip. I aced them all like it were a time trial. fastAr I tell ya. I finally passed too

I passed on my first attempt, but the guy didn't look like he really cared about anything. I got in, buckled my seatbelt, cranked the car, checked my mirrors, and backed out of the parking space.

"Why'd you back out, it was open in front of you, you could have just pulled through."

"Uhhh..... uhhhh...."

We go up the road, he has me turn into this little residential street, then another residential street. This street is designed to parallel park cars on both sides, and still have two lanes of traffic, so it's essentially 4 lanes wide, but unmarked. He tells me to parallel park. There are no cars around, so I just kinda pull forward next to a curb into an area that's not marked.

"Well, I would have preferred you pretended there were cars you had to back in around, but whatever. Now pull out and do a 3 point turn here."

"But this road is so wide I can do a U-turn on it."

"Let's pretend."

We finish that, then head back to the office and take the picture. My driving test took 5 minutes and went about half a mile.

^^If I grew up in NC, I would have passed on the first try. .

Maryland has had a specially designed course for the test.... at least since I took mine.

^^ what he said.

The maryland driving test doesn't take place on the road. It happens on a set course next to the DMV. They do the stop sign trick where after you do one objective they tell you to drive over to the next one but you pass a stop sign on the way there. Lots of people fail at that point.
