Bruno Te has been banned from the roads, handed unpaid work and has been given a suspended sentence after he was caught in January by Cambs cops.

The 28-year-old was driving his Porsche Panamera in Westgate, Peterborough on January 22 when he was asked to produce documents at the roadside.

Te handed over a fraudulent Portuguese driving licence and was arrested at the roadside - police also discovered his insurance was invalidated.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Police said: “When he was asked for his documents Te produced a Portuguese driving licence.

“Unfortunately for him, the officer had been specially trained by the DVLA in the examination of official documents and he immediately recognised it was a fraudulent licence.

“In interview he admitted he shouldn’t have been driving as he hadn’t passed a test and he knowingly obtained the false documents.”
