Following an investigation by Thames Valley Police’s Rural Crime Taskforce, two people have been sentenced for driving offences in Great Shefford, West Berkshire and Wantage.
William Lee, aged 45 and Sally Priest, aged 47, both of White Horse, Uffington, pleaded guilty to the offences at Oxford Magistrates’ Court on Thursday (18/5).
Lee admitted driving otherwise in accordance with a licence and driving without insurance and Priest was convicted of permitting William Lee to drive a motor vehicle without insurance and permitting a driver to drive a vehicle otherwise than in accordance with a licence.
Lee was disqualified from driving for 12 months and was fined £258, while Priest was banned from driving for six months and also fined £258.
The incident occurred at around 10am on 19 December 2022 when officers from the Rural Crime Taskforce caught Lee driving without a licence in the Great Shefford area of West Berkshire with Priest in the vehicle with him.
Four weeks later, officers from Roads Policing again caught Lee driving a vehicle, this time in Wantage, again with Priest present.
They were charged via a postal requisition on 1 February.
PC Ryan Dollery from the Rural Crime Taskforce said: “Driving without a licence is an offence which Thames Valley Police will always seek to prosecute where offenders are found.
“It is simply not acceptable to do so, and we will always look to summons offenders to court for such offences.”
