Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard on August 21 how Steven Oldfield, 28, of Cuttholme Road, Loundsley Green, Chesterfield, was caught driving a car without a driving licence on August 5 and was caught driving a motorcycle without a licence on August 6.

Prosecuting solicitor Katie Hamill said police were called to a single-vehicle collision on August 5 on Highfield Avenue, at Newbold, Chesterfield, at the junction with Newbold Road, involving a driver and two passengers.

The defendant admitted to police he had been driving and he had hit a kerb and that he was disqualified and checks showed he was banned from driving and had no insurance.
