Police were left shaking their heads this week after charging the same unlicensed driver three times in a 24-hour period.

The 68-year-old woman was first pulled over on Thursday about 11am in Leonay, west of Sydney, and charged with driving on a disqualified licence. She was requested to appear at Penrith Local Court on December 17.

Seven hours later she was pulled over in her Honda City sedan again, just minutes away from where she had earlier caught the attention of police.

The woman was arrested after returning a positive breath test and taken to Springwood Police Station where she underwent a breath analysis.

She allegedly retuned a secondary reading of 0.123 and was subsequently charged with mid-range PCA (prescribed concentration of alcohol) and driving whilst disqualified.

She was bailed to appear at Penrith Local Court on December 17 and ordered to not get behind the wheel of the car.

A mere 12 hours later, she was pulled over on the same street once again.

Police said she allegedly failed to complete a roadside breath test and was arrested and taken to Penrith Police Station, where she underwent a breath analysis.

She allegedly returned a reading of 0.148 and was charged with high-range PCA (prescribed concentration of alcohol), driving while disqualified and breaching her bail.

The woman was refused bail and will appear before Parramatta Local Court on November 28.
