Driver must keep R-plates on for extra four months after not displaying them

34-year-old pleads guilty to two charges

An R-plate driver from Onchan will have to keep his plates on for an extra four months after failing to display them.


Thirty-four-year-old Sean Patrick Wiseman of Barrule Drive in Onchan pleaded guilty to two charges via a coroner's admission.


At a hearing at Douglas courthouse, High Bailiff Jayne Hughes was told police stopped him on Victoria Road on 7 October because computer checks showed his tax had run out more than a month earlier.


Checks also showed he should have been displaying R-plates after passing his test in April.


Mrs Hughes fined him £300 as well as ordering him pay £50 prosecution costs and keep his R-plates on for an extra four months.
