Dylan Ronald Williams, of Sloan Street, represented himself before the court for sentencing, charged with a high range PCA, driver never licenced, using an unregistered class A vehicle and using an uninsured motor vehicle, to which he had pled guilty earlier in the year.
According to police facts, around 6pm on July 14, 2020, Williams drove a white Holden Commodore station wagon from his home onto Glenlogan Road.
About 1km south of North Logan Road, Williams attempted a u-turn and got the vehicle bogged.
He then walked home and returned with a friend to tow the vehicle from the scene.
Police arrived around 6.30pm following information from the public about a possible accident at the scene. Police spoke to Williams, who admitted to being the driver, saying that he didn't have a licence and had never held one in NSW.
He informed police the vehicle was unregistered and then he was subjected to a breath test, which returned a positive reading.
Williams was then arrested and taken to the Cowra Police Station for a breath analysis, which returned a reading of 0.161 grams of alcohol in 210 litres of breath.
He admitted to drinking 15 cans of Great Northern Mid Strength beer between 4pm and 6pm.
He also told police he had taken the vehicle for a test drive as a burnout car knowing it was uninsured and unregistered.
Williams told the court he had learnt a lot from the traffic offenders program around speed and fatigue.
He said the affects on victims was not just mental and physical, but also financial and personal.
