Learner's stung cruising without rego, license
JASON Crosswell was driving unlicensed but it was the lack of registration plates on his Hyundai Excel that first got him police attention.
Gladstone Magistrates Court heard that Crosswell, 32, was arrested driving his unregistered car on March 9.
Police prosecutor Gavin Reece said Crosswell had been driving unlicensed due to his suspension as a result of an accumulation of points with SPER.
Crosswell pleaded guilty to both offences.
Mr Reece said Crosswell was seen driving at 11.50am and his car had no registration plates.
A check revealed it had been unregistered for three days, and his licence suspended since November 4.
"He says he was only taking it out of the driveway but police say they saw him driving it further," Mr Reece said.
"He says he brought it off the former owner a couple days before."
Magistrate Mark Morrow observed that Crosswell had only been a Learner driver.
He fined the driver $700 and disqualified him for one month.
