POLICE from Logan Village Yarrabilba station have warned that motorists who drive unlicensed, uninsured or unregistered could lose their cars.

It came after two men were ordered to appear in court after they were pulled over by police on the weekend.

On Friday night, a 36-year-old Chambers Flat man was charged with unlicensed driving after police intercepted his vehicle.

According to police, it was his fourth type two offence. The car was impounded.

On Saturday night, police intercepted a 46-year-old Yarrabilba man who was also charged with unlicensed driving and driving a vehicle which was uninsured and unregistered.

Police said it was the man's third offence. His car was immobilised and the number plates confiscated for 90 days.

He will appear before the Beaudesert Magistrates Court on Tuesday, September 24.

Type two vehicle-related offences include driving a vehicle while it is uninsured and unregistered, unlicensed driving, high-range drink driving, exceeding the speed limit by more than 40km/h, driving an illegally modified vehicle, failing to supply a specimen of breath or blood or driving while under a 24 hour suspension.

Police said offenders could be issued an infringement notice, a Notice to Appear or be arrested and have to appear before a magistrates court.

Their vehicles may be subject to being impounded or immobilised for a prescribed period, depending on the number of offences the person has previously committed.

"It is irrelevant if you are not the registered owner of the vehicle," a police spokesperson said.

"The vehicle in which the offence is committed is subject to impoundment or immobilisation.

"The driver of the vehicle is liable to pay all fees of towing and storage of the vehicle for the prescribed impoundment period. Dependent on the length of the impoundment period, this could be a substantial cost."
