A Sandown man who was caught driving his luxury Audi without a licence or insurance had 2 children in the back of the car, the court has heard this week.
Rajinda Kumar, 40, of Fort Mews in Sandown, previously pleaded guilty to using a motor vehicle without insurance and driving otherwise in accordance with a licence. He failed to attend court on Tuesday, with the matter brought to a conclusion in his absence.
The court heard from Ann Smout, prosecuting, that Kumar was driving a black Audi Q7 along Sylvan Drive in Newport at 19:55 on 24th November 2020. He was stopped by Police and it was discovered that he only held a provisional driving licence – but wasn’t being supervised nor was the vehicle displaying L plates. It was also discovered he did not hold insurance on the vehicle.
The self-employed barber was noted to have 2 children in the back of the car.
Magistrates handed Kumar 8 points on his driving licence, fined him £461 and ordered him to pay £85 costs with a £46 surcharge.
