AN UNINSURED and unlicensed driver has been fined by magistrates after he was caught out on a Herefordshire road.

Peter Yool entered guilty pleas to one count of driving a motor vehicle otherwise than in accordance with a licence and one count of using a motor vehicle on a road or public place without third party insurance to magistrates in Worcester in January.

Hereford Times:

The court heard from the prosecutor that the 54-year-old had been caught after getting behind the wheel of a Nissan in Maund Common Lane in Bodenham, Herefordshire on September 17.


He was driving without a licence authorising him to drive a vehicle of that class and without a valid insurance policy in place, the court was told.

Yool, who is of Station Road in Newent, Gloucestershire, was fined £40 for the first offence and £120 for the second.

He was also handed six penalty points and ordered to pay prosecution costs of £90 and a £64 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.
