When he was selling a car a 20-year-old man decided to drive it even though he was not insured.
Padraig Judge, whose address was given as Millbrook Court, Lurgan, was fined £200 last Friday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for not having insurance on December 7 last year.
He was also given six points and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.
The court heard police detected the defendant driving without insurance on the Northway in Portadown.
Judge said he was selling the vehicle and was taking it to a mechanic’s yard on the Garvaghy Road.
He admitted he had no insurance.
A solicitor representing the defendant said he was driving to the yard to sell the vehicle.
