And further checks revealed he had a bag of cannabis in the car, Kirklees Magsistrates’ Court heard.
Lee Varley, 32, of Lockwood Road, Lockwood, pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis and driving offences.
The court heard Varley was spotted by police at Lockwood petrol station on August 11 after his Ford Focus was picked up on their system for having no insurance.
