Banned for six months

A 28 year old man was banned from driving for six months last Friday at Craigavon Magistrates Court.

Isaque Duarte, of Carrigart Crescent, Tullygally, was also fined £150 for driving without insurance on April 21.

As well he was fined £25 and banned for three months for not having a driving licence.

The court heard the offences came to light when he was stopped while riding a motorcycle on the Drumgor Road.

His solicitor said he had been carrying out repairs on his friend’s motorcycle and had ridden it from his own house to his friend’s house, a distance of about one mile.

He added that the defendant had previously been disqualified and had not applied for a Northern Ireland licence.
