The Dorset crash pilot passed the test a few weeks earlier

Officers from Dorset No Excuse Police attended an accident near Corfe Castle involving a driver who had only passed his test 20 days earlier.

Tickets were issued and vehicles were seized in a busy shift for officers.

A spokesperson said: “Our first job, we were called to a single RTC vehicle around a tight bend near Corfe Castle.

“The driver had only passed his test 20 days ago, inexperience and a heavy right foot in a tight corner, luckily no injuries.”

“Elsewhere, a silver VW Golf was seen parked on zigzags for a zebra crossing. Checks showed that the driver had not renewed his license for previous offences. He will now appear in court.

“During the stop sign, a Hyundai passed. We quickly located this vehicle after driving out of Bournemouth town centre; checks showed that the driver was otherwise driving in accordance with a license due to a provisional license and no insurance. Vehicle seized and driver reported to court.

“On the way back to the station, a Renault Clio caught our eye by swerving along the road. We could see he was holding his cell phone for maps.

“Vehicle stopped, driver admitted holding phone for maps, negative breath test provided. Further checks on vehicle showed MOT expired in January. Ticket issued for all infractions.
