Man drove without licence or insurance for more than 70 years

According to the police, the man in his 80s claims he has been driving since the age of 12.

A man who was pulled over by police in Nottinghamshire has said he’s been driving without a licence for more than 70 years, according to police.

Driving Under The Radar

The octogenarian was stopped by police near Tesco Extra, in Bulwell, Nottingham, on Wednesday evening. According to officers, the unnamed man, driving a MINI One, said he has been driving since the age of 12 but has never had a licence or insurance for his cars.

The Bulwell, Rise Park and Highbury Vale Police team said on Facebook that the man, born in 1938, has been driving safely all these years without a licence.

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.

They added that he’s never been involved in an accident or injured someone during all his years of driving without certification.

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

Bulwell, Rise Park and Highbury Vale Police - The City North OP Reacher team are out on pro-active patrols in Sherwood and Carrington this evening, but an early inquiry by The Bearded Boss over in Bulwell, found him pulling over this Mini One next to Tesco Extra. We can't quite believe what happened next, 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. (We'll let you do the maths!!) 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 camera's 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..... #youvebeenreachered #quickmaths #cantpaywelltakeitaway #rodehisluck | Facebook

It Will Catch Up With You

It is unclear what his sanctions were for driving all this while under the radar. The officers added that although he’s managed to escape the eye of the law for over seven decades, people should not make an example of him.

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.
