An unaccompanied learner driver has been charged after police said she was caught drink-driving twice in the space of four hours.
The 40-year-old woman was first stopped on the Goldfields Way in Temora after highway patrol officers detected a car travelling above the 50km/h signposted speed limit at 12.45am on Saturday.
Police stopped the Toyota Tarago and spoke to the driver.
Checks revealed the woman was a learner driver but she did not have any L plates on the car and did not have an accompanying supervisor.
She was breath tested at the scene, which returned a positive result.
The woman was taken to Temora police station where a secondary breath analysis returned a reading of 0.139.
