When he did not have a qualified driver beside him a 46-year-old man’s insurance company said they would not cover him.

Darren Samuel Lyons, William Street, Donaghcloney, was fined £100 last Friday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for driving uninsured on April 16 this year. He was also given six points. For driving unsupervised he was given a conditional discharge for 12 months.

Mr Conor Downey, defending, explained that the person sitting with his client had passed the test but was still subject to the two year restriction.
