This has not happened to me as i use a metal P plate that i drilled holes into and have attached it securely to my bike, coz i aint got no money to pay for a fine lol. My mother's Fiance who got his licence when i did(he is 43) he got booked by a copper the other day and I was disgusted with the penalty he was given. He lost 2 points and fined $209! The bad thing is 1/2 the P Plate was still attached, so its obvious that he had a Plate on and it broke off(as the RTA P plates are plastic they are easily broken and he even carry spares incase it comes off) Anyone else been booked for forgetting P plates, and is that 2 Point fine and 209buck fine a bit excessive? p.s Answering questions in advance. It was not double demerits, he wasnt pulled over for driving badly it was just a random RBT, and also the state is NSW.
