A later inspection of the vehicle by officers found the driver to be in possession of some cannabis, a class B drug which can lead up to five years in prison.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Police said: "The driver was stopped in Guyhirn by officers this morning.
"The driver had no insurance and he also had some cannabis.
