And it was aimed at me!!


First time ever... just down the hill from my house.


"Good afternoon Sir, how long have you had this Motorcycle?"


"I collected it yesterday. It was insured from Tuesday"


"Aah.. no problem, as far as our system is concerned it doesn't exist."


"Can I see your license?"


I gave it to him.. he looked at it, handed it back and said: "It might be an idea if you carried your receipt or insurance certificate for the next week, just in case you meet the wrong copper... I see you live just up the road. No problem and My apologies if I gave you a fright."


and that was that.

I got stopped years ago, producer for documents, off to local nick I went, 3 weeks later summons for me not holding a license at all, looked in wallet yup still there, called them, nope sir dvla say you never passed your test, wtf, I applied for another licence which arrived before court date, rang to say I now have 2 licences, they didn't like that, your not supposed to have 2 lol, they still proceeded with prosecution, obviously they failed, I had to surrender my original license though.


Sometimes they are a bit mental and having your docs is no guarantee lol, glad they were on the ball really the bike tho.

That won't happen. Im not insured to carry pillions and so will never be stopped for that specific reason.


And I don't have a car license. Never even had a lesson.

Yep, not a legal requirement, all it means if you have an accident with a pillion they can't claim for anything.


Worse case is if they are injured they could sue you and you'd have to pay out of own pocket if they won.

I got my 125 brand new and took weeks for registration to arrive, when it turned up was not registered until a couple of weeks after I bought it, never got stopped but effectively got an extra 2 weeks on tax and first MOT :thumb:
