Man admits driving without a licence for 40 years

A man stopped by motorway police told them he has been driving without a licence for the past 40 years. He was pulled over in the Nechells area of Birmingham on the 17th October, a police spokesman said.

The unlicensed driver also had no insurance and his car has been seized and impounded.

“He has committed a criminal offence, and the matter will proceed to the courts,” a West Midlands Police spokesman said. “We don’t know whether the driver had even passed his test,” he added.

Penalties for driving without the appropriate licence include a fine of £1,000, a driving ban, and being prevented from obtaining a licence for a period of years.
