Two P-plate licence holders who were caught with alcohol in their system faced Orange Local Court.
Adam Berryman, 19, of Carcoar Street, Spring Hill, was also caught driving with alcohol in his system after he returned a reading of 0.032 at 2.30am on December 7.
According to police, Berryman said he drank about 20 cans of beer and cans of bourbon and cola between 8pm on December 5 and 4am on December 6.
Berryman was a red P-plater and was driving along McKenna Street when police saw him and he was stopped after turning down Coronation Drive, Elm Street, Linden Avenue and back onto Coronation Drive.
He told the police he had not consumed alcohol recently but returned a positive result.
Berryman was convicted and his driver's licence was disqualified for three months.
Jacob Hayden Straney, 20, of Edward Street, was caught driving with alcohol in his system while having a red P-plate licence after he was clocked by police driving more than 20 km/h over the speed limit.
Straney was detected driving 71 km/h in a 50 km/h zone at 7.56am on February 9 and was stopped in Perc Griffith Way.
He told police he had three beers the previous night between 11pm and 1am and returned a positive alcohol reading of 0.039.
When he appeared in court he was told he should see a doctor in regard to liver function as both police prosecutor Carl Smith and magistrate David Day said he should not have alcohol in his system if he had that amount of alcohol at those times.
Straney was convicted, fined $330 and his driver's licence was disqualified for three months.
