TEENAGE driver Shane Whyatt pays £1,600 a year for car insurance - and was shocked to discover that still didn't give him cover to drive a borrowed car.
And now the 18-year faces taking a second driving test, because the six points put on his licence by Ely magistrates on Thursday means the young driver's licence will be revoked by DVLA.
Appearing at Ely courthouse, Whyatt, of Station Road, Wilburton, admitted driving a Ford Mondeo without insurance on December 20 last year.
"I have car insurance, and I thought it was fully comprehensive," he explained to magistrates. "But my insurance is for a commercial vehicle, because I drive a pick up truck, so it did not cover me."
