Hol­i­day driver did not have a li­cence

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

AN IN­DIAN man on hol­i­day in the UK has been found guilty of driv­ing with­out a valid li­cense or in­sur­ance.

Fahran Dias had been in the coun­try for a fort­night when he was pulled over on Fe­bru­ary 13 while at the wheel of a BMW.

He pro­vided a pro­vi­sional li­cense, but of­fi­cers found no trace of him on the DVLA when check­ing his in­sur­ance de­tails.

Mr Dias ap­peared at Uxbridge Mag­is­trates’ Court on Mon­day 15, with his fam­ily in the gallery, and strug­gled to give an ad­dress for where he was stay­ing.

When asked what he would like to say for him­self on the mat­ter, he re­sponded: “I am sorry for what I have done wrong.”

Mr Dias who ad­mit­ted the charges, was given a fine based on his as­sumed in­come earned at his job in In­dia.

He is un­der­stood to have paid £330 plus an £85 pros­e­cu­tion charge and a £33 vic­tim sur­charge af­ter the sen­tenc­ing.
