A BMW driver was caught out on the roads without a licence or insurance.

Mohammad Arif Maroof entered guilty pleas to one count of driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence and one count of driving on a road or public place without third-party insurance to magistrates in January.

The court heard from the prosecutor that the 28-year-old had been caught out in Hereford's Roman Road while behind the wheel of a BMW on July 12.


He was found to have been driving it without a valid licence entitling him to do so and without a valid insurance policy covering him to drive the vehicle in place, magistrates in Worcester were told.

Maroof, of Pearmain Drive, Holmer, was fined £120 and received six penalty points for the offence, with magistrates saying that they had taken his guilty plea to the charges into account when coming to their decision.

He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £90 and a £48 victim surcharge.
