Teenage banned from driving for passenger offences

A Newbury teenager has received a driving ban as a result of fears he might cause a car crash, despite the fact he is still only 16 and is yet to take his driving test.

The teenaged potential car crash hazard was handed the ban after a court heard he knowingly travelled as passenger in a stolen car in March of this year. The car had been stolen by an adult man, who had found its keys lying on a bar.

The two then went joyriding before being involved in a car crash with two parked cars, in which no one is thought to have suffered personal injury.

During the court hearing, the boy's father said, "He had just applied for his provisional license and was going to get driving lessons for his birthday but he knows he will have to wait another year now."
