A motorist behind the wheel for more than 70 years without a licence or insurance has been stopped by the police.

The pensioner in his 80s said he’d been driving without paperwork since he was aged 12.

The man was in a blue Mini One when officers stopped him in Bulwell, Nottinghamshire.

He told the traffic cops he’d never been stopped by the police before.


Nottinghamshire Police posted the offence on its Facebook page.

It said:

“We can’t quite believe what happened… as the driver, who was born in 1938, coughed that he had been driving with no licence and no insurance since he was 12 (yes TWELVE) years old… and somehow had managed to never be stopped by the police.

“Thankfully he had never had an accident, caused anyone an injury, and never made anyone lose out financially, by hitting them whilst uninsured.

“Due to the increased number of ANPR cameras in Nottingham, even on the small trips, you are likely to hit a camera.

“So, make sure your documents are in order… because it will catch up with you… one day.”
