A RINGWOOD man who had no licence and insurance has been fined and disqualified from holding or obtaining a driving licence.

Jonathan James Davies, of Christchurch Road, was sentenced by Weymouth Magistrates' Court on June 20 for driving a motor vehicle otherwise than in accordance with a licence, using a motor vehicle on a road/ public place without third party insurance and a valid test certificate.

Court documents state that on November 2, 2021 on Bure Road in Christchurch the 31-year-old drove a Ford vehicle and had no driving licence, insurance or a valid test certificate.

For the offence of driving without insurance he was fined £660 and ordered to pay a surcharge of £66 and costs of £90 - bringing the total to £816.

He was also disqualified from holding or obtaining a driving licence for six months.

This disqualification was obligatory, court documents state, "due to repeat offending".

His driving record was endorsed with six penalty points.

No separate penalty was given for the other two offences.
