They asked her to produce a current driver's licence, which she did, and she was then given a roadside breath test, which returned a positive reading for her class of driving licence.
Nazir was arrested and taken to Bathurst Police Station for a breath analysis, returning a reading of 0.016. As Nazir holds a P1 provisional licence, the reading falls into the range of novice.
