The South Australian man was pulled over by police in Port Augusta on May 26 after officers noticed something wrong with his number plate.
Police will allege the 31-year-old man was driving a BMW with a fake number plate made of paper, which he had stuck to his car using sticky tape.

A police check on the man found he was driving on a suspended license and officers promptly decided to search the car.
It is being alleged the police officers found a stockpile of weapons and drugs inside.
The Port Augusta man then produced a used syringe and some scissors he had on his person at the time, police allege.
He was arrested and charged with driving without a licence, driving with false number plates, driving an unregistered and uninsured car, five counts of carrying an offensive weapon and possession of controlled drugs.
The man was granted bail and will appear in the Port Augusta Magistrates Court on September 7.
