A HEYWOOD man will appear in court after speeding more than 80 km/h over the speed limit while evading police on Tuesday afternoon.

Officers in Heywood noticed the 22-year-old driving a car with no registration plates about 1.20pm on Lindsay Street and attempted to pull the vehicle over for a check.

The speed limit on the roads ranged from 60 to 100 km/h.

After being arrested and interviewed at the Heywood police station, he was bailed to appear in Portland Magistrates' Court on September 16.
