Adam Gregan, Richmond Crescent, Lisburn, admitted permitting no insurance on January 26 this year and Kerry Morrow (23), Rampart Street, Lurgan, admitted driving uninsured.

The court heard that police stopped a car driven by Morrow in Edward Street in Lurgan and she said she believed she was a named driver on the insurance.

On January 31 a certificate of insurance was produced but it only began 15 minutes after they had been stopped by police.

A solicitor representing the defendants said Morrow had valid insurance of her own and thought she was a named driver on her partner’s insurance.

Both defendants were fined £200, ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy and given six points.

On the tot up system Gregan was banned from driving for six months for accumulating 12 points.
