AN L-plater without a fully licensed driver failed a drug test in Myrtlebank on Monday.
Wellington Highway Patrol intercepted a Ford Territory for a routine check, and a licence review revealed the male driver was the holder of a learner’s licence, and was not in the company of a full licence holder.
Police allege the driver also returned a positive drug test, and was towing a trailer, which learner drivers are not allowed to do.
He will appear in court at a later date to face drug and driving offences.
