Manchester United defender Wan-Bissaka banned from driving for six months, fined £30,000

England and Manchester United defender, Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been banned from driving for six months and fined £30,000 for driving while disqualified and without insurance

According to reports in England, Aaron Wan-Bissaka admitted to driving while disqualified and without insurance on June 23 by Manchester Police while he was returning from a break abroad. The defender was given a six-month driving ban at Manchester Magistrates’ Court.

He prior to the ruling pleaded guilty to failing to provide driver details for two speeding offenses in September 2020.

But lawyers for Wan-Bissaka argued that the England international was in a “state of complete ignorance” of the Yorkshire driving matters as notification letters were sent to his former home in Croydon, London.

A six-month driving ban was placed on him at the Manchester Magistrates’ Court on June 18 while he was not present in court for having failed to reply to a notification sent to him. Police subsequently seized his A34 Lamborghini Urus after they stopped him.

Defending lawyer Shaun Draycott told the court “When he was stopped on the A34 he was courteous and respectful to the officers, and he indicated to them he had no idea he was disqualified.”

While giving the ruling that bans the Manchester United star from the road for half a year starting from today’s date, Judge Begley told the footballer: “Whether it was wise for you in the circumstances to delegate the tasks in relation to moving from the London address to Manchester is a matter you will have to reflect upon.”
