A man from Marlow has been hundreds of pounds for driving while disqualified.

Simon Protheroe, 44, appeared before High Wycombe Magistrates' Court on February 6 this year.

He pleaded guilty to a charge of driving while disqualified.

This was in relation to an incident which occurred at the end of last year.

On November 16, 2023, Protheroe was observed driving a BMW in Crest Road.

Police subsequently established that he was driving without a licence, and he was subsequently charged.

Following his guilty plea, magistrates handed Protheroe a further 10-month driving ban.

In addition, he was fined £200, and must pay an £80 victim surcharge.

He must also pay back £85 in prosecution costs to the court.

Courts in England and Wales are able to impose various penalties on drivers caught behind the wheel without a licence.

These include a fine of up to £5,000, penalty points on their licence, or a longer period of disqualification.

In the most serious cases, the offending driver may be jailed for up to six months.
