A man who handed a fake driving licence to police after being stopped in Ipswich has been jailed for 20 weeks.
Llir Kyreziu, 31, was driving a Toyota Prius in Little Whip Street, Ipswich on February 27 this year when he was pulled over by officers, Ipswich Crown Court heard.
Kyreziu produced a Romanian driving licence. He explained to officers that he was born in Albania but was now a Romanian national, Gareth Hughes, prosecuting, told the court.
Checks on the vehicle revealed it was a hire car in a different name, and Kyreziu was arrested.
The driver's licence was then examined and found to be counterfeit, Mr Hughes said.
