Laws state that foreign cars that have been in Britain for more than six months in a year must be registered with the DVLA and fitted with UK plates.
But owners residing in the UK must register their cars within two weeks of importing it.
A witness told The Sun: ‘We noticed the car going past us on the motorway because it really stands out, but we had no idea who was in it.

‘It was already indicating off when the police pulled in behind it and then put the blue lights on after they were safely off the motorway.
‘We couldn’t believe it when we saw the driver was Paul Pogba. It looked like he did everything that was asked.
‘We wondered what it was all about, he didn’t look like he was speeding or anything.’
The 27-year-old is due to make his long-awaited return to the pitch as United travel to Tottenham on Friday night.
