TV motorbike racer Guy Martin has been charged with using a fake Irish driving licence
TV motorbike racer Guy Martin faces court after using a fake Irish driving licence.
The 37-year-old daredevil, best known for tackling the world’s biggest Wall of Death live on television, was discovered to own the dodgy Irish licence in order to upgrade his UK one.
When DVLA checked his licence they found it to be not be genuine.
Martin wanted to add to other driving categories, such as lorries, according to The Sun.
The TV presenter pleaded not guilty for possessing a licence with intent to deceive when he appeared before JPs in Lincoln.
He elected for trial at crown court, where he will next appear for a plea, and was bailed until December 13.
He is accused of possession of a document ‘so closely resembling a licence that resembled an Irish driving licence as to be calculated to deceive’ between December 4, 2017 and May 15, according to the Lincolnite.
The father lives in Lincolnshire with his partner Sharon and their daughter.
The star, who was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, took up motorbike racing when he was a teenager and went on to break records.
