A 29-year-old p-plate driver caught high-range drink driving could be back behind the wheel in October.
Allanah Maree Lane drove a Ford Falcon police said was "swerving in and out of its lane, travelling at very low speed" about 9.25pm on April 6.
In court documents police said when they pulled the Dubbo resident over, she was unable to produce a drivers licence and handed them a receipt.
Lane's breath smelt of alcohol and her speech was affected, police said.
While p-plate drivers are unable to drink any alcohol and drive, Lane was breath tested and found to have had three times the legal limit of alcohol in her system that fully licensed drivers are permitted.

In Dubbo Local Court last week Lane pleaded guilty and wrote a heartfelt letter to the court.
"On the night in question I had organised for someone to drive me home from a gathering of friends," Lane wrote.
"Unfortunately, a situation began at the house and things became aggressive.
"I feared for my safety and decided to remove myself. People began to follow me so I jumped in my car."
Lane said she tried to ring her parents and they did not answer their phone.

Because of that, she "decided to drive around to their house two blocks away" so they could take her home.
"I drove slowly," Lane said.
"This is not an excuse, I know what I did was wrong."
The court heard Lane lost her job because she has been without a licence since she was charged.
"I have vowed never to engage in such dangerous conduct and want to take steps to never to drink and drive again," she said.
Lane's legal representative told the court she was previously convicted of low-range drink driving in 2018.
For her crime, Magistrate Gary Wilson placed Lane on a community corrections order for 12 months.
She must be of good behaviour and undertake 120 hours of community service.
Her licence was also disqualified for six months from the date she was caught.
