A 33-year-old man has had a driving ban extended after he was convicted in Orange Local Court of driving while his licence was disqualified.
Police were patrolling in Hill Street when they saw Nicholas Ian Hodgson, of Lords Place, driving a Toyota LandCruiser about 6.50pm on January 25.
He attracted their attention when he drove through a roundabout at speed.
Police turned on their lights and sirens and Hodgson stopped in Margaret Street, but could not handover his P1 licence because it was disqualified.
A check revealed his provisional driver's licence was disqualified from February 2018 until February 2023.
Magistrate David Day placed Hodgson on a six-month community correction order and disqualified his driver's licence for an additional six months.
Barrister Bill Walsh said Hodgson had a lengthy disqualification because he had been exempted from having to have an interlock device fitted to a vehicle following a drink-driving conviction.
"On his traffic record he seems to have one refuse breath test, one driving while disqualified," Mr Walsh said.
"He doesn't have a car, he gave his car up."
