Caught three times driving without a licence, one man has been slapped with hefty fines.
James Andrew Wilson, 25, came before Griffith Local Court on Wednesday charged with two counts of driving while disqualified, and another for driving while never being licensed.
Wilson was caught driving a scooter without a licence less than half an hour after he was pulled over by police in November.
Police were patrolling Benerembah Street at 7am when the saw him take "unusual notice" of their vehicle, and he sped away before they could catch him.
At 7.22am the saw him again on Kookora Street and pulled him over.
He told police he had never held a licence.
Officers told Wilson not to drive again and he would be issued with a charge, but they found him driving on Merrigal Street just 20 minutes later.
He was caught yet again in February in his girlfriend's car, which he told officers he'd borrowed to drive to a friend's house and "go and get some drinks."
"Your client is a real risk to the community," Magistrate Joy Boulos told Wilson's legal representative Paul Keane.
"He tells me it was a dumb thing to do," Mr Keane told the court.
He implored another chance for Wilson to get a driver's licence so he could be a productive member of society.
Ms Bolous told Wilson his behaviour was "pigheadedness," and asked what it would take "to get it through your head" that he couldn't drive.
He was convicted of all charges and disqualified for six months for each.
He was fined $500 for the first drive while disqualified, $660 for the next in time, and $500 for never licensed person driving.
