Man ’forgot’ expired license for 30 years 男子忘記駕照逾期達30年

An Ontario man charged with driving without a license said he has not had a license in 30 years because he forgot to renew it.
Bruce Newton, 73, of Innisfil, said he did not have the money to pay for his license renewal in 1980, so he decided to wait and eventually just forgot, The (Toronto) Star reported Tuesday.
Newton, who continued to drive for 30 years, was found out by police May 22 when he was pulled over for a minor traffic offense.
"I meant to renew it, but at first I couldn’t afford it and after a while, I never really thought about it, I just kind of forgot," he said. "I was just old and stupid, I guess."
Newton, who was charged under the Highway Traffic Act with driving without a license, said he is working on obtaining a new license, but he will have to start over with a beginner’s permit.
He is due to appear in court in August.
