Unlicensed driver blames rash for getting behind wheel
SUSPENDED driver Billie-Jo Cooling blamed "a rash" she had for going out driving when not licensed.
Cooling, 19, pleaded guilty in Bundaberg Magistrates Court to driving without a licence when SPER suspended at 11.35am on May 24.
"I was coming out with a rash that day and going to the doctor's," she told Magistrate Belinda Merrin.
But Ms Merrin said Cooling that she must make "better choices" and there was a home doctor service she could use.
Noting Cooling already had offences on her traffic history, Ms Merrin fined Cooling $450 and disqualified her from holding a driver's licence for six months.
