Remus, of Hamilton Road, Salisbury, was caught on November 15 2017 in a Ford Transit. Six penalty points were added to his driving licence. For using the vehicle when no test certificate had been issued, he was fined an extra £220.

He didn’t appear at Swindon Magistrates Court to plead to the charges but they were proved in his absence.
