Where to start.
If you are currently a provisional driver, the New Drivers' Act that can lead to a licence being revoked for six points only, immediately applies in the probationary period, which lasts for 2 years after you have passed your test.
He's likely to be charged with failing to drive in accordance with a licence (3 points). If the police are feeling particularly vindictive they could also seek to bring a "no insurance" charge as he has no licence, because the insurance would be void.
This would mean a penalty of 6-8 points (in total as the no licence penalty would run concurrently as the offences took place at the same time). Generally, it's up to 8 points plus fine for the no insurance. He should not get any additional points for being unaccompanied without a licence as the two offences will be dealt with concurrently as they took place at the same time.
A person who knowingly provides the Police with false information commits a crime of attempting to pervert the course of justice or perverting the course of justice. This is a far more serious crime than the original offence and can carry a prison sentence.
My advice would be to confess to giving false information - it will look better if he does it now, rather than the police finding out.
I think I've covered everything. I'm sure Auditastic can either confirm, correct and/or add to this.
Hope that helps.
