An uninsured driver has been banned from the road for 15 months.

Victoria Anne James, of Falcon Road, Haverfordwest, represented herself when she appeared before Pembrokeshire magistrates on Wednesday, January 23.

James, 35, previously pleaded guilty to using a Peugeot 308 in Milford Haven on July 5 when the car was not covered by third-party insurance.

Magistrates banned James from driving for 15 months after adding six points to the existing nine on her licence.

She was fined £180 and ordered to pay £85 court costs and an £85 surcharge.

The chairman of the bench said: “It’s a very serious offence driving without insurance.”
