A MOPED rider was caught out on a busy Herefordshire dual carriageway without a licence or insurance, a court has heard.

Anthony Ian Lewis was proven guilty of one count of driving a motor vehicle otherwise than in accordance with a licence and one count of using a motor vehicle on a road or public place without third party insurance by magistrates in Worcester.


The court heard from the prosecutor that the 57-year-old had been caught out riding an Aprilia Atlantic 125 on the A40 at Ross-on-Wye without a licence on April 16.

He had also been riding the bike without a valid insurance policy in place on the same date, the court heard.

Lewis, of Peterstow, Ross-on-Wye, was fined a total of £880 and received six penalty points.

He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £90 and a £352 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.
