A repeat disqualified driver was sentenced in his absence in Orange Local Court on Monday.
Leroy Wilton, 30, of Goorawin Road, was caught driving while between 8.45pm and 9pm on June 14.
According to police, a black Holden Commodore sedan was seen travelling on Peisley Street at 8.45pm on June 14.
The car turned onto Franklin Road but failed to stop when police attempted to stop it by turning on sirens and lights.

The car continued driving onto Endsleigh Avenue and drove into a driveway.
Checks revealed the car was suspected to be involved with the sale of drugs so police detained both the passenger and Wilton, who had been driving.
Police confirmed he had borrowed the car earlier that day.
Magistrate David Day said Wilton was previously disqualified from driving for six months and he was fined $550 in February this year.
"His general record is bad," Mr Day said.
"He was sent to jail for [driving] in 2010."
Taking into account Wilton's previous offending, Mr Day fined him $1100 and disqualified his driver's licence for 12 months.
