“No licence for 50 years”
It took half a century, but police have finally arrested a man who has been driving without a licence for 50 years.
Derbyshire Police pulled the car over last Saturday.
They discovered the 69-year-old driver had not possessed a driving licence, meaning he had been driving illegally for five decades.
He’d been tricking car insurance companies into thinking he had a licence the entire time – and had been bragging about his long-running scam.
Despite being illegal, he had never had a driving offence in those 50 years.
“He’s probably a far better driver than many road users,” a government spokesperson said. “The UK would benefit from having more drivers like this on the road!’
