A driver caught behind the wheel without a seat belt or an appropriate licence has been fined and given three points.

Robert Archibald, of Morris Croft, Smith’s Wood, was caught by police officers on September 5 last year.

The 62-year-old was spotted by patrol officers not wearing a seat belt as they drove past him on Hazelhurst Road in Castle Bromwich.

The officers turned round and noticed Archibald putting his belt on, Solihull Magistrates Court heard on Monday.

The defendant was stopped by the police and investigations revealed he did not have a licence to drive the car, there was no one supervising him in the car and there were no learner plates displayed on the vehicle.

Archibald, who has six points on his licence already, was given an extra three for driving a car without a licence and was fined £300, told to pay £85 costs and £15 victim surcharge.
