Bikers from Derbyshire Police’s roads policing unit witnessed the offender doing some ‘questionable driving’ on the motorway on Friday, October 15.

It was later found the driver, who was alone at the time, held only a provisional licence and had an expired MoT.

Provisional driving licence holders are not allowed to drive on motorways unless it is part of a lesson and they are accompanied by an approved driving instructor in a vehicle fitted with dual controls.

“Car initially won’t follow bike into services. Strong persuasion given and driver stopped.

“PLH on her own on motorway at speed. #fatal4 #commonsense #ridiculous #bumpercar.”
