The driver of the Mini One was born in 1938 and he told officers that he had been driving without a license or insurance since he was 12. 

He was not only once a 12-year-old driving, obviously without a license, but they also continued doing so all the way up until yesterday.

The maths whizzes among you will have figured out that the bloke is now going to be around 84 years old and has been driving about without a license or insurance for 72 years.

Perhaps even more remarkably, he said he had never been stopped by police and never had a crash.

In a Facebook post, Bulwell, Rise Park, and Highbury Vale Police said: “The City North OP [Operation] Reacher team are out on pro-active patrols in Sherwood and Carrington this evening, but an early inquiry by The Bearded Boss over in Bulwell, found him pulling over this Mini One next to Tesco Extra.

“We can’t quite believe what happened next, as the driver, who was born in 1938 (!!), coughed that he had been driving with no license and no insurance since he was 12 (yes TWELVE) years old…..and somehow had managed to never be stopped by the police. (We’ll let you do the maths!!)”

The post continued: “Thankfully he had never had an accident, caused anyone an injury, and never made anyone lose out financially, by hitting them whilst uninsured!
