Six penalty points were imposed on a 37-year-old man last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for driving without insurance on April 24 this year.

Mario Carvacho, whose address was given to the court as Tandragee Road, Portadown, was also fined £200 and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.

For not having a driving licence he was fined £100.

The court heard the offences came to light when he was driving in Hanover Street, Portadown, and police checks revealed there was no insurance in place.

He told police he had insurance and was asked to produce his documents.

On May 3 he attended at Portadown police station and said: “I made a mistake. I had no licence or insurance.”
