Do you know an illegal driver?illegal drivers poster

Are you aware of anybody who is driving illegally? If so North Wales Police would like to hear from you.


North Wales Police are continuing with their Illegal Driver Campaign – an initiative aimed at targeting those who drive whilst disqualified, drive with no insurance or drive with no valid driving licence.


Deputy Chief Constable Ian Shannon said: “We are urging anybody who may be aware of illegal drivers using the roads to contact the police immediately.


“Anybody found to be driving illegally can face being arrested. We will use all available powers to seize illegal vehicles and remove them from the roads. By doing this, we are helping safeguard the lives of others.


“It can be devastating if you are involved in a collision with an illegal driver. We want to put a stop to this and get the message across that we are targeting those who are driving illegally.


“The public can be reassured that we will not tolerate crime on our roads. If you suspect an illegal driver please contact us.”

Penalties for illegal drivers can include:

• Driving without insurance: 6-8 points and up to £5,000 fine (£200 for fixed penalty ticket)
• Driving whilst disqualified: 6 points, up to £5,000 fine and you could face a minimum 6 month prison sentence
• Driving other than in accordance with your driving licence: 3-6 points and £1,000 fine
• Failing to identify the driver of the vehicle: 3 points


North Wales Police are asking for the public’s assistance in their efforts to make the roads safer for all.
