Man admits letting partner drive his car when she was not covered by insurance

Penalty points and fine imposed on insurance offence

A Craigavon man who allowed his partner to drive his car believing her to be insured had been handed six penalty points.

Emmanuel Le Fouler, of Lakelands, pleaded guilty to permitting his other half to drive without insurance or a licence at Craigavon Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

Court heard that on March 19 at around 3.45pm police detected an uninsured Audi A7 on the Central Way, Craigavon.

Officers stopped the vehicle and spoke to the 40-year-o defendant’s partner, who said she believed Le Fouler had updated the insurance.

Police then spoke to the defendant who admitted giving his partner permission to use the car but said he thought the vehicle was insured for her to drive.

Representing himself in court, Le Fouler did not wish to add any comment.

The defendant was handed six penalty points and ordered to pay a fine of £275, along with the offender’s levy of £15, within four weeks.
