Learner motorbike rider – disqualified until 2068 – busted again

A learner motorcyclist is not likely to ever legally be allowed to get back on a bike, after again being busted by police on the NSW mid-north coast.

The 50-year-old, who is already disqualified from driving until 2068, was pulled over by Highway Patrol officers while riding a motorbike on Kanagra Drive in Taree.

They carried out a random breath test and asked the man for his licence.


“The rider was unable to produce a valid driver’s licence and inquiries revealed his learner’s licence was disqualified until 2068,” Police explained in a statement.

“A roadside breath-test returned a positive result and the rider was arrested and taken to Taree Police Station where he returned a reading of 0.036.”

Although the reading is below the legal blood alcohol limit for a driver with an Open licence, those on their Learners or P-Plates need to return a zero reading.

And, in this case, the man did not have a licence at all.

He has been charged with drive whilst disqualified and special range drink-driving to appear at Taree Local Court on Tuesday 3 July.
