Speeding Like Tevez – Driving Lessons in Burton upon Trent will keep you out of the Docks!

As per the Burton Mail two days ago, we learnt that Manchester City Striker, Carlos Tevez, has been sentenced to 250 hours of community service after pleading guilty to driving while disqualified and without insurance.  On top of this, Tevez received a six-month driving ban and a £1000 fine after entering into a guilty plea at Macclesfield Magistrates’ Court.  So what was Tevez originally disqualified for?  It was in failing to furnish information relating to incidents in which his Hummer was caught speeding.

Speeding is the most common form of traffic offence and most people are caught speeding in a 30mph zone.  Although it’s reasonably easy to fall into the trap of going that little bit over, think back to your driving lessons and how your driving instructor taught you to keep an eye on your speed.  Get back into that habit, because its very easy to get caught just a few mph over 30 and you’ll get at least a £60 fine and three points on your license.

If you haven’t started driving lessons yet, then we are one of the best Burton upon Trent driving schools you can use.  Our Burton upon Trent Driving Instructors provide a very high standard of driving lessons Burton wide, with an emphasis on instilling long lasting good habits right from day one.  So hopefully, you won’t be joining Tevez, at least not in the court system!
