Have your say

A COALISLAND man detected driving without a license has been given one week to book his driving test or face a “lengthy” disqualification.

Dwaine Brian Gervin, 41, of Loughview Gardens, Coalisland appeared before East Tyrone Magistrates’ Court in relation to an incident dating back to October 27th last year.

Gervin faced charges of using a vehicle without insurance, taking a motor vehicle without authority, driving without a valid driving licence, failing to display L-plates and driving as an unaccompanied learner.

Gervin was detected by police driving a black Seat Leon on the Ballnakelly Road, Coalisland.

Police asked Gervin to produce his licence and insurance to them within a week but on November 2nd, the defendant went to the police station to admit that he didn’t have a licence or insurance.

The court was told Gervin previously held a Provisional Licence.

District Judge John Meehan instructed Gervin that he should make an appointment to take his driving test within the next week or face a lengthy ban.

The case was adjourned until January 9th.
