No motor-car licence

Hertfordshire Mercury, 16th October 1915


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.
