Britons warned of fines, points and a driving ban for being drunk in the passenger seat


Mr Armstrong continued, saying: “If you’ve enjoyed one-too-many before getting in the passenger seat with a learner driver at the wheel, you could face 10 points on your licence, a fine of up to £2,500, a three-month prison sentence or a potential driving ban.

“You also need to make sure you’re qualified to supervise a learner in the first place. 

“Supervisors must be at least over the age of 21, have held their licence for three years and be insured on the vehicle.

“So if you’re planning on having a few drinks, it’s best to avoid pulling in favours from learners and draw straws among those with full driving licences as to who will be the designated driver.
