A serial offender drove a car without a licence before handing over fake identification to the police.
Saulius Semis appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court yesterday and admitted committing two offences on May 26 last year.
The 34-year-old was stopped driving along North Esplanade West, Aberdeen, on an unrelated matter and the police officers asked to see his licence.
Semis, of 18 North Street, Peterhead, handed over what looked like a Lithuanian driving licence with his details on it.
Fiscal depute Samia Rasheed told the court the officers felt the document was of poor quality and sent it to be analysed.
Experts ruled it was fake and it was discovered that Semis did not hold a valid licence.
Sheriff Kenneth Stewart deferred sentence for background reports to be carried out as it emerged that Semis had been carrying out a community payback order when the offences were committed.
He will return to court next month.
