A man from Bromley has appeared in court after riding a motorbike illegally at a McDonald’s restaurant in Croydon.

Carlos Alberto De Assis Costa admitted to riding the Yamaha motorcycle with no insurance and without the correct licence at the McDonald’s restaurant in Wickham Road at 2.20pm on July 9, 2021.

There was no insurance in force at the time which covered the use of the vehicle in this way.

Costa, 44, also did not have a licence for this class of motor vehicle - in that he did not have a CBT certificate.

The defendant, of William Booth Road in Penge, was ordered to pay £770 in total for the offences during a hearing at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on March 17, 2022.

This includes a £600 fine, £60 to fund victim services and costs of £110, Costa was also given six points on his licence.

The fines relate to the lack of insurance offence, and no separate penalty was given regarding the licence offence.

The balance must be paid by April 14, 2022.
