Driver used phone with no licence or insurance

Have your say

A MAN has been handed a jail term after admitting driving without insurance or a licence and while using a mobile phone.

David Allan, of Augustine Road, Cosham, was banned from driving for 19 months after he was stopped on February 5.

The 29-year-old was in a Volkswagen Sprinter van in Kingston Road, Fratton.

Portsmouth magistrates imposed a four-month prison sentence suspended for 12 months for driving without a licence.

Allan must complete 150 hours of unpaid work over a year and complete 12 months of supervision.

No separate penalty was imposed for driving while using a mobile phone and driving with no insurance but his driving record was endorsed.

He must pay an £80 victim surcharge and £85 to the Crown Prosecution Service.
