L-drivers have cars seized by gardai in Kilkenny
The checkpoints in the city were manned by members of Unit C from Kilkenny Garda Station.
Gardai confirmed prosecutions will follow the seizures.
A local Garda spokesperson said: “A number of vehicles were seized for varying offences with appropriate prosecutions to follow. Unfortunately some drivers are also still contravening the regulations around drivers on Learner Permits, who must be accompanied by a fully licenced non Novice driver. The Clancy Ammendment was brought in for good reason. Road Safety is everybody’s responsibility.”
