A Burlington driver caught travelling at more than double the speed is facing some serious consequences.

Halton police say the young motorist was clocked going 110 km/h in a 50 km/h community safety zone on Maple Ave.

The incident occurred on Saturday, Nov. 25 around noon.

Along with the excessive speed, police say the G1 driver was unaccompanied and told officers that they had failed their G2 test just a week before.

In Ontario, if you have a class G1 licence, you must not drive alone. An accompanying qualified driver must sit in the front passenger seat.

For the offence, the driver had his vehicle impounded, driver’s licence suspended and now faces a court date for a stunt driving charge and ignoring the G1 rules.

The Ontario government outlines all the requirements for driving in the province on its website. As well, you can find all the driving classes that are available. You can find the information here.
