Police pull over a 17-year-old driver on the Hume Highway.

A 17-year-old male driver was stopped on September 10 at 6.40am on the Hume Highway near Mundarlo travelling in a red Mitsubushi Lancer at 134km/h.

The registration plates belonged to a Ford and the driver said the vehicle was unregistered and he could not get a permit so he put those plates on.

He was issued infringements for exceeding his 90km/h speed limit for a P1 driver, unauthorised number plate and driving unregistered and uninsured.

The driver’s licence was immediately suspended for three months.

The female passenger said she had a P2 licence and the vehicle was directed to Tarcutta, where they were instructed to organise registration or a tow truck.

The same vehicle was then seen south of Tarcutta at 7.50am.

It was stopped and police discovered the registration issues had not been rectified and the female driver did not hold a P2 licence as previously claimed, she held a Victorian Learner’s licence.

She received infringements for driving the unregistered and uninsured vehicle, not displaying L plates and being an unaccompanied Learner.

Her driving privileges were suspended in NSW for three months and the male passenger received three more infringements.

The vehicle was seized.
