No chance of getting licence back
A MAN who was caught driving despite his licence being disqualified absolutely, has been fined.
Ipswich Magistrates Court heard Shaun Makin, 48, drove on November 17 last year because his partner had a sore back.
He pleaded guilty, was fined $1200 and had his licence disqualified for two years.
Magistrate Virginia Sturgess said Makin probably would have had a good case to apply for his absolute disqualification to be lifted as he had stayed out of trouble for at least five years.
But Ms Sturgess said Makin had ruined his chances by driving before getting the ban lifted.
“At your age you've got to make up your mind; you're not a driver, you're not licensed,” Ms Sturgess said.
