    He got pulled over in his car by the LEO and when no record of a UK driving licence could be found he said he had an Irish one, when he showed later it was a forgery, stupid fekker

    So he's now being taken to Court for giving false information and offering a false document, which he will be found guilty of, these offences carry big fines and time locked up, suspended or not

    The case isn't due to be tried until July 2019 so he may get a decent brief to plead this off, unfortunately for him the Courts over here don't do the plea bargaining like the US, they take a very dim view of wasting Police time, also contempt of the earlier Court when he pleaded not guilty

    So definite ban, when he does get a licence, big fine and costs against him are just the start of the new life, unable to drive

    Due to our motorcycle licence laws being so excessively complex/expensive I can see he'll never get one now

    As it stands he has no licence so is unable to use anything on public roads until he gets one

    Well, that doesn't sound particularly bright.
