A provisional driver has been charged with animal cruelty after allegedly running over a group of ducks in northern NSW.

An off-duty police officer spotted the 18-year-old man driving along Beardy Street, Armidale, on January 26.

It's alleged the P-plater switched lanes to deliberately hit four ducks waddling across the road.

Two birds died at the scene, two flew away.

The 18-year-old was arrested on Friday and charged with animal cruelty and driving offences, including not displaying any P-plates.
He's due to face Armidale Local Court on March 26
