The man, who has not been named by the police, was reported for both offences and will also be summoned to court for speeding at a later date.
An image of the man giving the finger to the police as he rode by the speed camera was released by the force today.
The Roads Policing Unit tweeted: ‘Great work from RPU 5 who stopped this male with help from colleagues in our Traffic Process Unit. He had no licence & no ins and multiple speeding offences pending…we hope he’s got some comfier shoes with all the walking he will be doing’.
Chief Inspector Craig West, head of roads policing at Kent Police, said: ‘Speed limits and cameras are in place to protect the public and should not be treated as a game.
‘Motorists who speed risk receiving a fine and points on their licence, and in certain cases being brought before the courts.
‘More importantly they risk causing a collision that could result in a death or serious injury.
‘Please remember to drive responsibly at all times to protect yourself and other road users.’
