A RYDE man must fork out more than £800 in court costs after being caught driving on the mainland without a licence or insurance.

The case of Scott Roper, of Melville Street, was heard at Bodmin Magistrates' Court on Tuesday (May 3).

The 33-year-old was charged with driving without a licence or insurance, in Cornwall, on July 10, 2021. 

The court heard he drove a Vauxhall VRM on Agar Road, Redruth. 

Roper was fined £660 and ordered to pay costs of £90 and a £66 surcharge. 

He was disqualified from driving for six months and his driving record was endorsed with eight penalty points. 

The court heard the disqualification was obligatory due to repeat offending.
