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.
