Belgian man banned from driving over being caught without license 19 times


A Belgian man has been punished with life long ban after being caught driving without a licence for the 19th time.

According to the sources, the man had previously received 700 hours of community service, but even that did not prevent him from driving illegally.


It was in Dilbeek (in the province of Flemish Brabant) in 2020 that the man was caught for the 19th time during a police check.

The man’s lawyer pleaded for a lenient punishment. Still, the judge pointed out that previous sentences of community service, plus previous prison time, had apparently done nothing to persuade the man to conform to the law.

The man was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment and was given a lifetime ban on driving. He must also pay a fine of €8,000.

Another group consists of people who are not allowed to drive for medical reasons but do it anyway. Police cited 4,142 offences in Brussels, 2,189 in Ghent and 2,136 in Antwerp.

Driving without a valid license is liable to a driving ban of eight days to five years, possible fines of up to €11,000 and even incarceration.
