Who would get the fine?

Recommended Posts

Today I followed a private car with L plates on that had an illegally modified number plate. If the vehicle had been pulled over by the police who would get the fine, the learner driver or the person supervising?

If your a learner and not displaying the L's then you'd be prosecuted. It's a basic requirement of learning to drive. 

Driver would be driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence as no L plates are being displayed. Likely chance is a TOR would be issued. 

The person supervising also commits use though the offence being cause permit in relation to driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence. 

The illegal plate would just be a non endorsable offence so a Fixed penalty notice would be issued. 

Hope it helps.

Potentially both.
