A driver pulled over in Birmingham on 17 October, BBC News revealed this week, had been driving without insurance or indeed a driving licence since the early 1970s.

By this simple expedient, experts believe, he would probably have succeeded in reducing his motor insurance premiums by around £15,000.

But, now his little ruse has been rumbled, he can expect to have the full weight of the law brought down most mightily upon his sorry hind parts.

Driving without a licence can attract penalties of up to £1,000, and then he can expect to cop a further fine of £200 or more for driving without insurance.

The killer blow, however, is that this law-flouting renegade can now expect to be banned for serveral years from holding a driving licence.

Let’s see how he likes that!



What our clients say about us

Jo was friendly while still professional. She answered any questions and was patient and happy to help. Next steps and cover confirmation could have been a bit clearer. I've had calls from credit hire that I was expecting for replacement bike but they were pushing to do repairs. I was told this would be done by an approved repair. I called just after 9am to notify a claim and was told I would receive a call back within 10 to 15mins. I had to call back an hour later as no one had called back. The lady who answered, Jo, did deal with things straight away and was very helpful
