Buncrana Roads Policing Unit were on patrol in the Carndonagh area on Saturday night when they stopped a car that had been detected travelling in excess of the speed limit.
But that was only the start of the trouble for the driver.
They then discovered that the tax, insurance and NCT on the car had expired.
The driver was arrested on suspicion of drug driving and the car was seized.
He is expected to appear at a future siting of the courts.
