DESPITE all the warnings, a probationary licence driver has been pinged at more than double the blood alcohol level, and that's if he had a full licence to begin with.
The driver, who should be driving with a zero blood alcohol level given the type of licence, was caught in Bacchus Marsh at the weekend with a reading of .106.
Moorabool Highway Patrol immediately impounded his car.
Making the matter even worse for the driver was when further inquiries were conducted the driver was found to be driving with a suspended licence.
The man has been charged with various traffic offences and will be called to court on summons at a later date.
It comes after Ballarat traffic management police conducted a series of tests on drivers at the weekend as part of Operation Regal.
The operation is targeting drivers over the Queen's Birthday long weekend and will wrap up at midnight tonight.
