A teenager caught speeding and not wearing a helmet on a motorcycle has gotten himself into more strife, by only having a NSW Heavy Vehicle Licence on him.
Highway patrol officers were patrolling the Pacific Highway at Lake Munmorah in southern Lake Macquarie at about 9am on Saturday when they saw a blue Yamaha GSX motorcycle travelling at 70km/hr and being ridden by a male not wearing a helmet.
The 19-year-old from Summerland Point was stopped and produced a NSW Heavy Vehicle Licence to police.
To make matters even worse the motorcycle had been unregistered since December 2021 and was also uninsured.
He was subsequently issued $3134 for a number of offences including not wearing a helmet, being unregistered and uninsured and being unlicenced for riding the motorbike.
