Stormont Executive press release - Department of Environment
A Co Armagh haulage firm was fined a total of £400 and court costs of £56 at Belfast Magistrates' Court yesterday.
LMK International Transport Limited, Unit 1 James Park, Mahon Road, Portadown was fined £50 for causing and permitting a motor vehicle to be driven by an unlicensed driver, £200 for using a vehicle without valid motor insurance and £50 for using a vehicle without a Goods Vehicle Certificate.
On 16 August 2012, DVA Enforcement Officers stopped an articulated goods vehicle as it travelled along the A12 Westlink Belfast. Upon an examination of the vehicle it was noted that there was no goods vehicle certificate in force on the Scania motor vehicle. Further checks revealed that the driver was not the holder of a valid driver's licence thereby rendering any motor insurance invalid.
Further to this a representative from LMK International Transport Limited was interviewed under caution and admitted the offences.
