A MUM-of-two has admitted to driving with no insurance and only holding a provisional licence.
Beverley Kilshaw, 30, of Woods Terrace, Marsden, appeared in Huddersfield Magistrates Court yesterday after pleading guilty at an earlier hearing.
Prosecutor Linda Fowler told the court Kilshaw was spotted driving her mother’s Toyota in Oliver Lane on April 1 this year, when police pulled her over.
She said checks revealed Kilshaw had no insurance and she should have been accompanied and displaying ‘L’ plates due to only holding a provisional licence.
Kilshaw, who was unrepresented, told the court in a statement: “I don’t know why I did it. My mum didn’t know there wasn’t insurance. It was the first time I had ever done it and I won’t do it again. I have two children who I don’t want to hurt through my silliness.”
The court heard how Kilshaw already had penalty points and as a result she was automatically disqualified for six months.
She was also fined £115 for no insurance, £15 victim surcharge and £85 costs.
Magistrate Stephen Sykes warned Kilshaw: “Driving whilst disqualified is a very serious offence and one which could result in imprisonment.
“It is your responsibility to ensure the fines are deducted from your benefit otherwise the enforcement officers will come knocking.”
