A Bexley man has been fined a total of £826 after driving a Mercedes without a full driving licence or insurance.

Rhys Heselden was caught driving the vehicle along Crawford Way in Bexley on September 20, 2021, at around 10pm.

It was found that the 24-year-old was not qualified to drive and only held a provisional licence.

No learner plates were displayed on the Mercedes, and he was driving unsupervised by a qualified driver.

Heselden, of Hall Place Crescent, appeared at North West London Magistrates' Court on April 28.

He was fined £660 with a further victim surcharge of £66 and a fixed cost of £100.

These fees must be paid by May 26.

Heselden also received eight points on his driving licence.

The verdict for both offences were proven with a Single Justice Procedure.
