Teenage learner had no insurance or supervision

By Jessica Durston - 21 July 2021


A learner driver from Swindon has been banned from the roads after being caught with no insurance or supervision.

The 17-year-old who cannot be named for legal reasons, was seen by a PCSO getting out of the driver’s side of a vehicle in the Penhill area of Swindon in February.

He was arrested because the vehicle was not displaying L plates, he was driving on a provisional licence without supervision and he was not insured.

The learner appeared at Swindon Youth Court yesterday - 20 July - and pleaded guilty to driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence and driving without insurance.

He was fined £120, his licence endorsed with eight penalty points and disqualified from driving for six months.

This investigation was carried out by Operation Ager, a proactive policing operation in Swindon designed to tackle youth crime.
