A man doing a delivery was detected in a Ford Transit van without MOT or vehicle excise licence.
Ian Millar (60), of Ardenlee Terrace in Bushmills, was detected at Garvagh last November.
The van also had two defective tyres.
Defence solicitor Fergus McIntosh said the defendant had been driving for 40 years with a previously clear court record although he did have penalty points on his licence.
The defendant was given three penalty points and fined £200 at Coleraine Magistrates Court on February 11.
