Provisional licence holder faces disqualification after driving at 99mph on M58

By Josh Luckhurst

A provisional licence holder from Liverpool faces disqualification after being caught driving at the speed of 99mph on the M58.

Merseyside Police's Roads Policing Unit posted a photograph on their official Twitter account of the speed gun that clocked the driver, who was in a Volkswagen vehicle, going over 40 per cent of the legal speed limit.

In addition, the provisional driver was in the vehicle unsupervised, while such licence holders are not allowed to be on motorways without an approved driving instructor.

The vehicle was seized and the driver was reported to summons, where he is expected to face disqualification.

The statement on the force's Twitter account read: "This vehicle was stopped on the M58, travelling at 99mph.

"To make matters worse, the driver was a Provisional Licence Holder driving unsupervised.

"His vehicle was seized and he has been reported for summons and can expect a disqualification."
