Guy will now get his days in Crown Court at the start of next year.

Television personality Guy Martin will face trial at Crown Court in just under six weeks’ time over fake driving licence claims.

Martin, 37, of Barnetby, Lincs was originally due to stand trial on July 1 but the date was moved to January 6, 2020.

Martin has previously denied possession of a document with intent to deceive between December 4 2017, and May 15 last year relating to: “A document so closely resembling an Irish driving licence as to be calculated to deceive”.

Guy Martin arriving for court last December.

He has also denied that between March 1 and May 15 this year he made a false statement by claiming he was the holder of an Irish driving licence entitling him to drive certain categories of vehicles for the purpose of obtaining a British  licence to drive some categories of vehicles.

Martin was excused attendance at a hearing at Lincoln Crown Court when Judge John Pini QC put the trial back to January 6.

The trial is expected to last three days.
