A WIGAN woman whose car collided with a motorbike as she attempted a u-turn was stunned to discover that she did not hold a driving licence.

Louise Prescott told Wigan magistrates that she only found out that she did not hold a valid licence in the aftermath of a crash on Wigan Road, Ashton, on March 17.

She claimed that she had been scammed by a fake driving examiner. In the incident, Prescott’s Mini collided with a motorbike as she attempted a u-turn.

She pleased guilty to driving without due care and attention and driving without a valid licence. Prescott, 21, of Jennings Park Avenue, Abram, was fined £60, ordered to pay £35 prosecution costs and a £15 victim surcharge. Her provisional licence was endorsed with four penalty points.
