A p-plater has been charged after allegedly driving faster than 200km/h at Raymond Terrace.

The 18-year-old man was arrested after he was allegedly recorded driving 209km/h on the Pacific Highway at 10.30am on Friday. He faced court later that day, where he was refused bail because the alleged offence was a breach of prior bail conditions.

He will face court again on April 18.
