A new driver may have to resit their test after their car was seized by police for not being insured.

Edinburgh's Road Policing officers stopped the vehicle in Corstorphine on Tuesday night, and it emerged that the driver was still within the two year probationary period and will be reported to the Procurator Fiscal.

A UK driving licence will be revoked if you get six or more points within two years of passing your test.
