my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What is it you would like to know please?
What would be the provisional license holders best course of action.
What will happen to him when he tells the police what he has done? What should I do as his employer and owner of the vehicle?
have you read my questions above?
Technically this is obstructing the Police.
I now have two chat windows open and not sure which you are in?
In short he is driving otherwise in accordance with a licence.
It may be the insurance was also invalid.
So worse case:
1) No insurance - 6 points and a fine
2) Driving otherwise in accordance with a licence - 3-6 points and a fine
3) Obstruct PC - fine
This would top up to a bann I assume?
No, the points and not consecutive, concurrent.
So it would be 6 points maximum
Is he likely to be kept at the police station?
Its a regular traffic offence.
So he should present himself there and admit fully to what he has done, agreed? Also should I do anything, apart from discipline him as an employer without my permission
Yes I would think so.
There is nothing else you need to do
Hypothetically, if the driver he pretended to be had gone along with him and taken his license to the police station would they have found him out? I said the reason they took the photo at the roadside was to compare it with the person who took their documents to the police station, does this happen routinely?
Usually there is no photo but if someone presents themself with no evidence I guess the Police do take photos in the event that someone does lie, which is the case here
Can I clarify anything about this today please?
No I think that is it. Thank you
