A TEENAGE P-Plater has allegedly been clocked 81km/h over the speed limit with next-to-no tyre tread on the Hume Highway at Tumblong.

Police clocked the 17-year-old travelling at 171km/h at about 8.30pm on Thursday, despite his licence restricting him to just 90km/h.

When officers pulled over the driver, they noticed two young passengers were also in the car. 

The 17-year-old has only had his licence for three months prior. 

He was issued a court attendance notice and had his car impounded indefinitely.
