A clueless driver has been caught filming himself breaking the law after he was clocked speeding down a highway.

The young tradie was spotted speeding in a white Toyota Hilux on the M1 Motorway near Berowra in northern Sydney at 5.40pm on Monday.

The 19-year-old P-plater driver was travelling 173km/hr in a 110km/hr zone. 

After police informed the driver his license would be immediately suspended he unlocked his phone to call a friend – revealing the incriminating video.

In the footage the young man can be seen filming himself with one-hand while driving at the incredibly high speed.

After already breaking multiple rules, the man from the Canterbury-Bankstown LGA was found to have no reasonable excuse to be away from his home address, breaching public health orders.

The man also did not have any P-plates on the vehicle, adding to his extensive list of fines. 

The young tradie was issued $4174 in fines and 13 demerit points, while also breaching NSW's public health orders, leaving the Canterbury-Bankstown LGA without a reasonable excuse
