Officers from Kent Police Road Policing Unit seized a vehicle on Thursday night (September 2) after its driver was found to be a provisional licence holder.
The driver passed a roadside breath test, but the car itself was found to be untaxed and had no MOT.
Both of the vehicle's front tyres, meanwhile, were so worn that chords were exposed.
The driver was subsequently reported.
If you are caught driving without an MOT, you can be fined up to £1,000.
Vehicle Excise Duty (VED – also known as vehicle tax, car tax or road tax), meanwhile, must be paid on the majority of vehicles registered in the UK, and any motorist caught driving without it could also be fined up to £1,000.
