Former Cleveland Police Authority chief Dave McLuckie persuaded a friend to take three penalty points for him to avoid a driving ban, a court heard.
Newcastle Crown Court heard Mr McLuckie said he needed a "big favour" to help his career.
The 51-year-old, from Great Ayton, North Yorkshire, was accused of asking his friend Maurice Ward to say he was driving Mr McLuckie's black Peugeot when it was caught doing 36mph in a 30mph zone at Carlin How, Cleveland, in April 2005.
At the time, McLuckie was a Redcar and Cleveland councillor and vice-chairman of the police authority. He had nine points on his driving licence and was facing a ban if three more were added, the jury heard.
Mr McLuckie denies the charge. The trial continues.

"These latest figures over the Easter period demonstrate there is still much work to be done to tackle arson, and we are continuing to work closely with our partners and local communities to put a stop to it once and for all.
“Grass fires not only blight our landscape and harm our countryside; they also put the lives of residents, firefighters, visitors, and animals in danger."
