A BANNED driver who was caught back behind the wheel has been ordered to do unpaid work.
Mohammed Alom was spotted by police as he drove a Vauxhall Vectra in Station Road, Gosport.
The officers pulled him over after a check on the car revealed it was not insured.
The 30-year-old, who was banned for a previous driving offence, lied to the police, insisting he had a licence.
But a check on his details showed he was banned.
Alom, of Stoke Road, Gosport, admitted driving while disqualified, driving without insurance and obstructing a police officer when he appeared at Fareham Magistrates’ Court.
At the time Alom was serving a community order after being convicted of possessing cocaine and heroin.
The magistrates ordered him to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work within a year.
He was banned from driving for another six months and told to pay £55 in court costs.
Alom also has to attend a Thinking Skills course run by the probation service.
