Manwaring, of Kangarooby Road, Gooloogong, was driving a Honda Coupe when he was stopped by police in relation to speeding on the Lachlan Valley Way about 11.30am, November 25.
After he failed to show a driver’s licence a check of the RMS computer showed Manwaring was suspended until January 17 due to exceeding his demerit points.
Court heard that Manwaring was too eager to drive his new vehicle.
“He couldn’t resist the opportunity to show his friends the brilliant motor car,” solicitor Geoff Casey said.
“He realises he was stupid, that was the first thing he said to me.” Manwaring also copped a $250 fine.
Cowra man Adam Peter Brown has been convicted at Cowra Local Court, after pleading guilty to breaching an AVO.
Brown, 34, of Waratah Street, had two beers in the company of the protected person about midday on December 17 before an arguement broke out later that night.

The victim contacted police.
On December 20, about 12.45pm, Brown was arrested at the low level bridge and he admitted to consuming alcohol in the presence of the protected person.
He was placed on a section nine bond to be of good behaviour for 12 months.
