Connor Richards was formerly known as Paul Alexander, when he was stopped by police in a routine motoring check on Crwys Road, Cathays, Cardiff, on March 23.

The city Magistrates' Court heard he had a bald tyre on the vehicle and was issued with a pounds 60 fixed-penalty fine.

But Richards, of Ronald Place, Ely, Cardiff, was unable to pay the fine, because his licence was still issued in his old name.

He told the court: "From the age of 18 I've been arrested because of someone else called Paul Alexander and I was advised to change my name.

"I've tried to get the details of my driving licence changed through the DVLA, but they keep sending it back to me.

"I've tried to pay the fixed- penalty fine but they wouldn't let me without the licence."

Richards, who was unrepresented in court, also admitted using a car without an MoT, but said he was unaware it had expired. Magistrates fined him pounds 60 and endorsed his licence with three penalty points.
