The driver, who had eight driving bans in total, was stopped on the A96 near Kintore in Aberdeenshire last week during a three-day crackdown on uninsured and untaxed drivers.
Police sources indicated the motorist, who produced a reading of 116mg of alcohol per 100mg of breath, was likely to see his vehicle confiscated.
In another case, a 28-year-old foreign driver was found to allegedly be driving at 120mph on A9 at Daviot in the Highlands.
The campaign, from August 14-16, resulted in a total of 248 driving offences, 179 relating to uninsured drivers and 69 to driving licence offences. Police also seized 104 vehicles which could now be confiscated. Around 10% of the offenders were caught using automatic number plate recognition.
Chief Superintendent Ralph Noble, from Northern Constabulary, who is the Association of Chief Police Officers Scotland (Acpos) spokesman on roads, said: "Once again we have seen during an acpos campaign that people are prepared to flout the law while driving their vehicles.
"Drivers and vehicles are licensed and insured for a reason and to ignore the rules is unacceptable.
"People may think that they can escape the law but we have shown with this campaign that this is not the case.
"The police and law enforcement partners across Scotland will work together using all of the tools at their disposal to detect law breakers on our roads."
Police made 219 inquiries to the Motor Insurers' Bureau (MIB), to check if motorists' had valid insurance.
An MIB spokesman said: "This operation has demonstrated how vital police enforcement is in removing uninsured drivers from our roads and sends a clear message to motorists that it will not be tolerated."
Drivers are also being urged to log onto the Motor Insurance Database (MID) to ensure their details are up to date. The website is www.askMID.com
