Holiday driver did not have a licence
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.
