Raymond Hepburn, 40, of Drumbeg, Raphoe, was already banned from driving for 10 years when he met a Garda checkpoint on October 12th, 2011.
He fled the scene and led Gardai on a high-pursuit chase through several villages before abandoning his red Seat car in the middle of a road.
Along the way several cars had to drive into ditches to avoid Hepburn.
Letterkenny District Court was told that a truck even had to take evasive action to prevent being hit by the Hepburn.
He was charged with seven cases of dangerous driving and driving without a license.
The court was told that the accused already had 20 previous convictions for various offences including drink driving and forging a driving license.
Solicitor Frank Dorrian said his client was only taking the car to the scrapyard as it was worth just €200.
He accepted it was probably the end of his driving career for the moment.
Judge Paul Kelly ordered a probation and community service report on the father-of-two and adjourned the sentence until October 15th.
