The 18-year-old from Gortnaskea in Burnfoot, County Donegal, admitted to having no L plates on the vehicle on August 16.
District Judge Barney McElholm said: ‘This is Don Juan – I was going to say Derry Juan but that would not be correct.’
Defence solicitor Seamus Quigley said: ‘We all know tractors are all about pulling power but this taking it to extremes.’
Mr Quiqley said Breslin had been sent by his father to look for some cattle, the Belfast Telegraph reported.
But after that he had ‘taken the head staggers’ – a Northern Irish expression meaning to be stupid – and that he had gone to Derry to look for women.
Breslin was fined £50.
