And when they caught the 21-year-old – after he ran out of fuel – he only had a toy licence issued when he was a toddler in 2003.

He was arrested on suspicion of multiple driving and drug-related offences.

His grey Audi A1 had failed to stop for the Met on the A2 in Bexley.

Over the next half an hour he sped through Kent eventually coming to a stop in Minster in the early hours of February 28.

Alongside the phoney photo card – awarded for passing a fake driving test in a brick-built car at the popular Windsor theme park – a large amount of cannabis was found.

Kent Police's roads policing unit tweeted: "No, the #LegoLand license was not the reason for the drivers dangerous driving, the large amount of cannabis was."
