A MAN who drove a car without a licence or insurance – and the woman who let him do so – have been fined a total of £3,300.
Kimberley Jayne Le Normand (35) allowed her partner, James Paul Camfield (33), to drive her grey Audi in St Clement, even though he did not hold a valid licence. Her vehicle was insured but the policy did not cover him.
In the Magistrate’s Court, Camfield admitted driving without a licence and insurance and Le Normand pleaded guilty to the charge of aiding and abetting the commission of an offence.
Crown Advocate Luke Sette, prosecuting, said that at 7am on the morning of 12 July this year the police had seen Camfield driving the car with Le Normand in the passenger seat.
Camfield said he was learning to drive but no L-plates were displayed and his provisional driving licence had expired on 15 September last year. He also admitted having no insurance.
Le Normand admitted allowing an uninsured driver to drive her car but said she was unaware that he did not hold a valid licence.
Assistant Magistrate Peter Harris said that since it was their first offence and they had pleaded guilty early he was not going to ban them from driving or endorse their licences.
But he fined them £1,500 each for the insurance offences and imposed an extra £300 fine on Camfield for driving without a valid licence.
