Fined driver learns lesson in court
WHEN Desmond Cyril Lawrence Angus was pulled over, he was always going to be in trouble.
The 20-year-old was pulled over by police on the Ipswich Mwy on the morning of Wednesday, July 23.
He was alone in the car, despite handing the police a learner's permit requiring him to be accompanied by an open licence holder, and not having any learner's plates on the car.
To make matters worse, the licence had been disqualified, and he hadn't renewed it after the disqualification ended.
Angus pleaded guilty at the Ipswich Magistrates Court yesterday to being a repeat unlicensed driver. He told the court he didn't know he had to get his licence renewed after the disqualification ended.
He was fined $250 and disqualified from holding a driver's licence for one month.
