driving without licence

Postby anzana » Thu, 30 Jun 2005 12:33 am

Hi All

My husband last year driving a car without licence.Unfortunely he got caught by the police.This month he received a summoned from court and was charge under 2 charges:

1. Driving without licences

2. Third party car.

Can I know roughly how much does the summoned cost?I AM teribbly depressed right now as I am pregnant for 7 months now.Can we pay as instalment? Or will he go to jail? :(

Pls give me advice and answer to the above :(


Sad wife
Pls I need any advice or answer to the question above.Thanx :cry:

Summons to the court are free but the fines handed out there are not.

A quick reading of the Road Traffic Act seems to indicate that no specific punishment is spelled out, so the offenses fall under 131.a.2., namely (a) in the case of a first offence, to a fine not exceeding $1,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 3 months.. But I'm not a lawyer and I don't understand what you mean by "third party car" either (unlicensed or what?).

Look at the bright side: at least he won't be getting any points :wink:

No worries, we've all done silly things. Usually the script is such that we get away with it. But sometimes the men in blue rewrite it. And then we get what we deserve. No big deal. Just poney up and move on. :arrow:

Check out this thread... ... 619&page=0

Seems like just a fine and a time bar from taking the driving test. Unlikely a jail term unless someone got hurt in an accident.

But the car owner will be in deeper trouble.

"Third Party Car" refers to operating a veh without third party insurance.

I haven't heard of paying fines by installments.
