Caught Driving Without a Licence (LC10 Offence)?

Under section 87(1) of the Road Traffic Act 1988 it is an offence to drive a vehicle without a licence appropriate to a vehicle of that class or to drive a vehicle on a provisional licence unless accompanied by an appropriate person and displaying ‘L’ plates on your vehicle.

There are thousands of people in the UK who drive without a valid licence. These include disqualified drivers, those who have never held a driving licence, those who do not hold the correct type of licence for the vehicle they are driving ie HGV, and provisional licence holders.

Driving without a full licence is an offence and comes under the LC10 conviction code. This type of offence will get you 3-6 penalty points and a maximum fine of £1000. The court also has the power to issue a ban if they wish to stop the driver obtaining a full licence for a set period of time.

Learner drivers must hold a provisional driving licence in order to take driving lessons in the UK. They must be accompanied by a fully licensed adult aged 21 or above who has held their driving licence for at least three years.
