You would be committing an offence under the highways act 1980. Any incident involving public safety relating to your equipment on the highway would be your full responsibility, and it is unlikely your insurance would cover this without a licence from us.
Once we are aware of unlicensed items on the highway we will issue you a notice requiring you to remove the items or obtain a licence within a certain time period. If this notice is not complied with we have the power to remove the items and fine you up to £1000.
