A STRING of motoring offences cost a man £260 and six penalty points at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
Marc Rielly, 47, of Turniebrae, Dunrossness, admitted driving a car with no licence, insurance and no MOT certificate as well as two bald tyres.
The offences took place on 10 March as Rielly drove between the Brig o Fitch and Ladies Drive.
Defence agent Gregor Kelly said that Rielly had bought the car the previous night and was on his way to have work done on the car when he was stopped by police. He had no driving licence at the time but had subsequently obtained one.
Sheriff Ian Cruickshank admonished Rielly for having no test certificate and fined him a total of £260 for the other offences and imposed the penalty points.
