Repeat offender risks going to jail
MIRIAM Vale driver William Bugeja has been disqualified from driving for three months after he was caught driving unlicensed.
A Bundaberg court heard he had never held an open licence - only a learner's permit.
Bugeja, 24, pleaded guilty to repeat unlicensed driving on Round Hill Rd at 6.30pm on July 19.
Police intercepted a blue Nissan sedan he was driving and a check revealed a learner permit had expired back in August 2015.
Magistrate Belinda Merrin said it was Bugeja's responsibility to get a licence and he now had significant traffic offences, including a serious offence of failing to stop.
She said if he continued to offend he was at risk of going to jail.
Bugeja was fined $550 and disqualified for three months.
