Nov. 21 (UPI) -- A German police department shared the cautionary tale of a teenager whose driver's license was revoked just 49 minutes after it was issued.

Police in the Markischer Kreis region said in a Facebook post that the 18-year-old was caught going 60 mph in a 30 mph zone just 49 minutes after he passed his driver's exam and was given a license.


The post said the driver, who was apparently showing off for his young passengers, has his license revoked for four weeks and he will have to attend training sessions before he can get it back.

"Some things hold for eternity... some not even an hour," police wrote.

The post said the teen was also slapped with a $228 fine.
