A 29-year-old Erin man is fined for driving without ever having a driver’s permit.
Jeromy Rampersad, of Arena Village, Erin, was fined $2,500 by Magistrate Nizam Khan at the Siparia Magistrates’ Court, according to a release of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) on Friday.
He was fined for driving while never been issued a driver’s permit, failure to produce a driver’s permit, and driving without a valid certificate of insurance.
The offences stemmed from an incident on February, 17, 2021.
The court heard that acting Cpl Buntin along with WPCs Anatol-Sylvester, Butler-Moses and Collins of the Siparia Municipal Police Station were conducting routine checks along the SS Erin Main Road when they stopped a white Nissan B12 driven by a man.
When officers requested the man’s driver’s permit and certificate of insurance, he admitted that he had never been issued with one.
He was subsequently arrested and charged by WPC Butler-Moses.
