RECKLESS speeding was what brought Korean national Yongchan Kang to police attention.

He driving on the Bruce Hwy through Torbanlea on December 9 when police noticed the car he was driving was approaching at a high speed.

Kang's speed was recorded at 134kmh in a 100kmh zone.

He had four passengers in the car.

The car he was driving was uninsured and unregistered.

When police spoke to Kang, he gave them an international driving licence that expired in July last year.

Police contacted immigration and it was revealed the licence belonged to a man who had returned to Korea.

Magistrate Graeme Tatnell said Kang, who was living in Bundaberg, would have to apply for an Australian driver's licence.

He issued a $1250 fine.
