A MAN has been banned from driving by magistrates after repeat offending.

Steven Mark Evans, of Danily Court in Well Street, Malpas, appeared at Chester Magistrates' Court on April 3 charged with driving a Renault in Well Street without a licence.

The court was told that the 39-year-old had driven the vehicle without 'L' plates and was unsupervised.


He pleaded guilty to the charge.

A separate charge of driving without insurance was withdrawn.

Magistrates said Evans would be banned from holding or obtaining a driving licence for six months due to his repeat offending.

They also fined him £40, ordered he pay £16 to the victim services fund, and £110 in court costs.
