A DRIVER caught out on the roads in Hereford after his licence was revoked has been given penalty points.

Richard Fallon entered guilty pleas to one count of driving without insurance and one count of driving after refusal of grant or revocation of a driving licence on account of disability to magistrates in Worcester in April.

The court heard from the prosecutor that the 52-year-old had been caught out in Hereford's Coningsby Street after getting behind the wheel of a BMW on September 17.

Checks revealed that Fallon's driving licence had been revoked on August 14, 2020, and that he had not since been granted a licence to drive a motor vehicle.


He was also driving the BMW without a valid third party insurance policy in place, the court heard.

Fallon, of Alveley, Bridgenorth, was fined £421 and received six penalty points for the offence, with magistrates saying they had taken his guilty plea into account when deciding on the penalty.

He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £110 and a £168 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.
