An Exmouth teenager has been handed a nine-month conditional discharge and eight penalty points after committing three offences on the road.

When he appeared at Exeter Magistrates' Court on Thursday (October 19), the 17-year-old admitted to driving without due care and attention, using a motor vehicle without insurance and failing to stop when required to by a police officer.

The offences all took place on Saturday, June 3, when the defendant was caught riding the uninsured scooter on Withycombe Village Road.

The teenager, who cannot be named because of his age, was also ordered to pay £85 in costs and a £20 surcharge, giving him a £105 court bill.

This will be paid in monthly instalments by a parent or guardian.

The nine-month conditional discharge means no further action will be taken against him unless he commits another offence within that time.

Court documents say the teenager's guilty plea was taken into account.
