At Welwyn Petty Sessions on Friday, before Sir Alfred J. Reynolds (in the chair), Mr C, W. Gaussen, and Mr J. H. L. Deards, a Baldock farmer named Alfred White was charged with driving a motor-car without a licence at Welwyn on September 25. He pleaded guilty. P.c. Baker, of Welwyn, stated that on the date named, at 10.45 p.m., he stopped the defendant, who was driving a motor-car. He found that his licence had expired on July 9, 1915. In reply to questions from the witness, the defendant said: ‘I am very sorry, I did not notice it; I will see to it when I get home. We are usually informed when it is due. I have not been told this time.’ The defendant now said that he had sent to Hertford for his licence a few days ago, but he had not received it. He admitted that he was to blame in not renewing his licence at the proper time. The Bench imposed a fine of 10 shillings.
