A motorist caught without insurance less than two years after qualifying could go back to being a learner, police have warned.
Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team stopped the silver Volkswagen Golf in Mildenhall on Tuesday, May 14.
They Tweeted afterwards: "This vehicle was stop checked in #Mildenhall. The driver was found to be uninsured. The vehicle has been #seized and the driver reported."
Even though cases of driving without insurance can go to court, many are dealt with by fixed penalty notices of a fine of up to £300 and six penalty points on a driving licence.
But those who get six penalty points or more within two years of passing their driving test face having their licence revoked
